KCP&L Buys 500-MW of Wind Energy Output

KCP&L buys 500-MW of wind energy output from two Missouri projects

Kansas City Power & Light (KCP&L) signed 20-year power purchase agreements for an additional 500-MW of power from two new wind power plants in Missouri.

Both of the projects are located in KCP&L’s service area. One is the 200-MW Osborn plant, constructed by NextEra Energy Resources, expected to begin operations by the end of 2016. The second is the 300-MW Rock Creek wind farm, being built by Tradewind Energy. It is expected to reach operations by September 2017.

When the projects are operational, they will increase KCP&L’s total wind portfolio to nearly 1,400 MW.
