Jayhawk Wind Farm Starts Service

The 190-megawatt Jayhawk Wind Farm in Bourbon and Crawford counties, Kansas, has gone into commercial operation, according to WEC Energy Group. Jayhawk produces renewable energy that is sold to Meta, formerly the Facebook company, under a long-term deal. WEC Energy Group’s investment is projected to be $302 million, which will cover the 90 percent ownership interest as well as the majority of the tax benefits. The investment is part of the company’s ongoing ESG Progress Plan, which includes major investments in efficiency, sustainability, and growth.

“Our commitment to the Jayhawk project is yet another step forward in our complete goal to establish a bright, sustainable future, serve strong, lively customers, and expand revenues from our renewable energy portfolio,” said Gale Klappa, executive chairman. There are 70 GE Wind¬†turbines at the Jayhawk site. The facility will be operated by Invenergy, which has acquired the remaining 10% ownership interest. Apex Clean Energy, a premier clean energy firm, created the project.
