Duke and Sumimoto have completed the first of two Kansas wind farms.
Duke Energy Renewables and Sumitomo Corp. of America have completed the first of two Kansas wind farms the companies are developing jointly, the Cimarron II Windpower Project in Gray County.
Kansas City Power & Light has a 20-year agreement to purchase all of the electricity and renewable-energy certificates generated by the 131-megawatt Cimarron II facility, according to a press release issued.
Duke Renewables, a commercial business unit of Charlotte-based Duke Energy Corp. (NYSE: DUK), sold a 50 percent stake in Cimarron II and the 168-megawatt Ironwood Windpower Project in Ford County to Sumitomo in April.
Duke Renewables develops wind and solar energy generation projects and maintains a portfolio of commercial renewable assets, including 11 wind farms and 11 solar farms in operation in eight states.
Sumitomo is the U.S. subsidiary of Japan's Sumitomo Corp., an integrated trading and investment enterprise engaged in multifaceted business activities with consolidated assets of $87.8 billion.
