Kansas adds 660MW wind power, targets significant emissions reduction
  • The extension will help the State reduce emissions by 80% by 2050
  • Addition of 660 MW by Evergy increases its capacity to 4,535 MW

Evergy, provider of clean and safe energy, along with Laura Kelly, Governor of Kansas, have jointly announced that the State’s wind power portfolio will be extending by about 660 Megawatts. This extension shall help reduce the production of emission by 80% by 2050 which will be in alignment with the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement (PCA) by 2050.

Seemingly, around four major wind turbines will be using power to draw as well as cater to sizeable business and residential clients. Evergy’s Chief Executive Officer, Terry Bassham stated that the reduction of carbon emission and boosted wind power in the systems tend to profit the company’s clients with the help of reduced operational activities and sustainability.

Bassham further added that this has been a significant expenditure in Kansas that shall help create fair opportunities for green energy and also offer additional revenue for other remote areas and municipalities. This development will also be contributing to a more attractive job generation potential.

Evergy projection has a goal of achieving a reduction in pollution by 40% by the year 2020. Evergy has also stressed the main components of its strategy that involves the removal of coal-fired energy plants post the completion of their working lives from the Evergy float. This has been scheduled for 2040 and 2050.

Apparently, Wolf Creek’s Nuclear Depot will be operating up till 2045 while the expenditure on efficiency and sustainable energy will continue to be significant.

The addition of 660 MW by Evergy, now having a maximum of 4,535 MW, will improve the efficient power generation. The adoption of wind farms like these will favor the extension and funding of the Direct Renewables project of Evergy that would further help all the Kansas businesses achieve an affordable wind power exposure as well as minimize the energy costs significantly.
