Duke Energy, Sumitomo complete 131 MW Kansas wind farm

Charlotte, N.C., June 11, 2012 — Duke Energy Renewables and Sumitomo Corp. of America (the U.S. unit of Sumitomo Corp.) completed the first of the joint venture partners' two Kansas wind farms — the Cimarron II Windpower Project in Gray County.

Kansas City Power & Light purchases all of the zero-emission electricity and renewable energy certificates generated by the 131-MW Cimarron II facility under the terms of a 20-year agreement.

Duke Energy Renewables, a commercial business unit of Duke Energy, sold a 50- percent stake in Cimarron II and the 168-MW Ironwood Windpower Project in Ford County to Sumitomo Corp. of America in April.

Duke Energy Renewables assets include 11 wind farms and 11 solar farms in operation in eight states, totaling more than 1,000 MW in electric-generating capacity.
