Ironwood wind farm

Duke Energy Renewables and Sumitomo Corp. of America on Oct. 18 said the Ironwood Windpower Project in Ford County, Kan., is complete. This is the second of the joint venture partners' two Kansas wind farms.

Topeka-based Westar Energy (NYSE: WR) purchases all of the electricity and associated renewable energy credits produced by the 168 MW Ironwood project under the terms of a 20-year agreement.

Duke Energy Renewables, a commercial business unit of Duke Energy (NYSE: DUK), sold a 50 percent stake in Ironwood and the 131 MW Cimarron II Windpower Project in Gray County to Sumitomo Corp. of America in April.

Duke Energy Renewables operates and maintains Ironwood and Cimarron II, with Sumitomo Corp. of America actively involved in management of the projects.
