Judith Gap Wind Farm

Wheatland County has learned how to put the wind to work thanks to Invenergy Services of Chicago. The Judith Gap Wind Energy Center was built in 2005 between Harlowton and Judith Gap. Ninety towers rise 262 feet above the prairie, supporting General Electric turbines which are powered by three 126-foot blades. Each turbine is capable of producing 1,500 kilowatts of power. Expected annual output is 450,000,000 KW hours. All power is sold to Northwestern Energy under long-term contract. There are plans for visitor kiosks to be located at the Wind Farm entrance and at what is to be called Blade Park in Judith Gap.
