Enel Green Power as started construction on the 199 megawatts expansion of the Cimarron Bend wind farm in Clark County in Kansas in US. The expansion, consisting of 74 turbines, will increase the wind farm’s capacity to 599 megawatts from the current 400 megawatts, making it the largest wind farm in Enel’s North American portfolio. Construction, which will involve an investment of over 281 million US dollars, is expected to be completed by the end of 2020.

Cimarron Bend’s first two phases entered into service in 2016 and 2017, involving an overall investment of over 891 million US dollars. Upon completion of the 199 megawatts addition, Cimarron Bend will generate a total of more than 2.7 TWh per year, equivalent to avoiding 1.8 million tons of CO2 emissions.

The electricity from a 150 megawatts portion of the expansion is being sold under a 15-year bundled power purchase agreement with electric services company Evergy. The PPA will include support for Evergy’s Renewables Direct program, which allows commercial and industrial customers to offset a percentage of their energy usage through renewable sources. In January, Evergy committed to reducing carbon emissions 80% below 2005 levels by 2050.

A Missouri Public Utility Alliance joint action agency, the Missouri Joint Municipal Electric Utility Commission, which supplies municipal power for more than 60 communities in Missouri and Arkansas, will purchase the output of a 30 MW portion of the project under a 12-year bundled PPA.
