State’s largest wind farm planned in NW Missouri

Element Power will begin construction on the state’s largest wind farm later this year near Oregon, Mo., in southern Holt County.

The company will generate 200 megawatts of electricity at the Mill Creek Wind Farm and will sell the power to Kansas City Power & Light — representing half of KCP&L’s recent commitment to add 400 megawatts of wind power to its grid.

Construction is expected to begin in the fall of 2014. If everything follows according to plan, the wind farm will begin to operate commercially by the end of December 2015.
