Westar seeks proposals for 80 MW of renewable energy

Source:Westar Energy

Westar Energy (NYSE:WR) has issued a Request for Proposals for renewable energy resources through power purchase agreements (PPA) to provide a minimum of 80 megawatts of generation by the 4th quarter 2016.

Westar's ultimate decision to add more renewable resources will hinge on overall cost, reliability, adequate transmission capacity to deliver the energy to its customers, the status of state and federal policy on renewable resources, and regulatory treatment. Westar will give preference to projects in Kansas.

Historically, most renewable energy in Kansas has been wind, but any renewable energy project will be considered if it meets Westar’s objectives.

As part of the request, Westar will offer a portion of its Ironwood development rights in Ford and Hodgeman counties. Developers are free to use their own sites as well. Proposals are due Sept. 13, 2013.

A complete copy of the request for proposals is available on the utility’s website:  Westar RFP
