131 MW wind energy project in the works for Duke

Duke Energy Renewables, a unit of Duke Energy (NYSE: DUK), is making plans to build, own and operate a 131 MW wind farm in Kansas.

The company purchased the fully developed and contracted Cimarron II Windpower Project from CPV Renewable Energy Co. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. CPV will continue to own the first phase of the wind project, Cimarron I.

Kansas City Power & Light will purchase all of the electricity and associated renewable energy credits produced by Cimarron II under the terms of a 20-year agreement, originally agreed to between KCP&L and CPV.

Duke Energy Renewables plans to start construction of the project in the fall of 2011 and begin commercial operation by June 2012.

In May, Duke made plans to build the 168 MW Ironwood Windpower Project in Kansas and an agreement to purchase the 20 MW Shirley Windpower Project in Wisconsin.
