Walmart Makes Power Purchase Agreement for Energy Produced by New Texas Wind Facility

Walmart has signed a 10-year power purchase agreement for more than half the output of a new 200-MW wind farm in Texas.

The nation’s largest retailer is buying 58-percent of the energy produced by Pattern Energy Group’s Logan’s Gap Wind facility in Comanche County, Texas.  That power will serve 380 stores, which accounts for about 10 percent of the company’s U.S. fleet, and cover more than a quarter of its power needs in the deregulated parts of Texas.

Walmart’s ultimate goal is to use 100-percent renewable energy, though the company has not announced its deadline.  Currently, about 25 percent of the company’s power is supplied by renewable sources.

Logan’s Gap is Pattern Energy’s fourth operational wind facility in Texas.
