Built in 2005, the Judith Gap Wind Energy Center is located about half-way between Harlowton and Judith Gap on Hwy 191. Owned by Invenergy, a leading supplier of sustainable energy, the ninety towers that make up the wind wind energy center, rise 262 feet above the earth and are powered by three 126-foot blades.
Each turbine is capable of producing 15 megawatts of power, enough to power up to 400 homes. The combined 90 turbines can produce up to 135 megawatts when in full production. All energy is purchased by Northwestern Energy.
While not a tourist destination in itself, the wind center is an awe-inspiring site that can be seen up to 25 miles away. Worth a drive to see, Judith Gap also boasts a Blade Park, showcasing one of the 125 foot blades. While there are no facilities at the park, there are several interpretive panels telling the story of the development.
