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.
