The Slate Creek Wind Project, located within Sumner County, Kansas, approximately 50 miles south of Wichita, commenced construction of its 75 Vestas 2 MW wind turbines in April, 2015. Great Plains Energy, parent company of Kansas City Power & Light and KCP&L Greater Missouri Operations will purchase the electricity generated pursuant to a 20-year, fixed-price power purchase agreement.
The150 megawatt (MW) Slate Creek Wind Project in Kansas reached commercial operation on December 29, 2015.
The facility will generate enough electricity to power the equivalent of 55,000 average Missouri and Kansas homes, according to US Energy Information Administration. As a result, this project will prevent approximately 460,000 metric tons* of new greenhouse gas emissions per year, the equivalent of the annual emissions from approximately 96,000 passenger vehicles.
