Pattern Development Acquires Logan's Gap Wind Project in Texas
Pattern Energy Group acquired the 200-MW Logan's Gap wind project located in Comanche County, Texas, from Pioneer Green Energy. Pioneer Green Energy began work in 2013 and executed a 10-year PPA with Wal-Mart stores, for approximately 60% of the project's expected production. Pattern Development expects to arrange financing for and start full construction of the project in the fourth quarter of 2014. The project is located in ERCOT's North Zone and will connect to Oncor's 138kV Comanche-Zephyr line, which crosses the project site and supplies power to the Dallas-Fort Worth area. The project is expected to begin commercial operation in late 2015.
