LCG, September 19, 2007--AES Corporation yesterday announced plans to build Buffalo Gap 3, a 170 MW expansion of its Buffalo Gap wind farm near Abilene, Texas. AES executed a seven-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with Direct Energy for all of the power produced by Buffalo Gap 3.

The Buffalo Gap 3 expansion will include 74 Siemens model SWT-2.3-93 wind turbine generators. With the addition, the total capacity of the Buffalo Gap wind farm will be approximately 524 MW.
