 150-MW Slate Creek Wind Project Comes Online

EDF Renewable Energy’s 150-MW Slate Creek Wind Project reached commercial operation last month.

Construction started in April 2015 on the wind farm, about 50 miles south of Witchita, Kansas.  With its 75 Vestas 2-MW wind turbines, Slate Creek is expected to generate enough electricity to power the equivalent of 55,000 Missouri and Kansas homes.

Great Plains Energy will purchase the electricity generated by the farm under a 20-year fixed-price power purchase agreement.

“We are pleased to bring the Slate Creek Wind project to operation in the central corridor where wind resources, supportive communities and a long-term utility partnership come together to create a successful renewable addition to the grid.”

EDF Renewable Energy has developed 7.6 GW of wind, solar, storage, biomass and biogas projects across North America.
