EDP Renewables, a global leader in the renewable energy sector, has secured a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with Great Plains Energy to sell the energy produced by the 200 MW Prairie Queen wind farm.
Prairie Queen wind farm is in Allen County, Kansas, where operations are scheduled to commence in 2019.
Through this new arrangement, EDPR will expand its footprint in Kansas to a total of 600 MW. The company already has locked down 1.5 GW in long-term agreements in the U.S. for projects to be installed through 2016-2020, which represents 82 percent of the 1.8 GW target capacity additions in the U.S. for that period, as announced at the EDP Group Capital Markets Day in May 2016.
