EDF Renewable Energy, a U.S. unit of
French utility Electricite de France SA, has agreed to sell
electricity from a 150-megawatt wind farm in Kansas to Great
Plains Energy Inc.

Construction on the Slate Creek wind project, about 50
miles (80 kilometers) south of Wichita, is expected to begin in
late 2014, according to a statement today from San Diego-based
EDF Renewable Energy. The wind farm will be composed of 75 2-megawatt Vestas Wind Systems A/S (VWS) turbines and is expected to
begin generating power by the end of next year.

Terms of the 20-year power-purchase agreement weren’t
disclosed.

Including Slate Creek, EDF Renewable Energy will have
developed almost 400 megawatts of wind energy in Kansas.
