Western Plans to Harness Wind

Western Resources has announced plants to initiate a wind power demonstration project in Kansas by the end of the year. The project will include two 750 kW class wind turbines, capable of producing approximately 5.2 million kWh of electricity annually, based on wind patterns. Western Resources currently has a 5,312 MW capacity.

The option to buy “green” power will be made available to interested customers on a voluntary basis. p
