In the third quarter of this year, Element Power says it plans to begin construction of the 200 MW Mill Creek Wind Farm in Holt County, Mo.
Kansas City Power & Light Co. recently signed a power purchase agreement for the project's output, and once the facility is operational, Element Power says the wind farm will be the largest in the state of Missouri.
Element Power adds that it continues to work with local, state, and federal entities on regulatory and environmental reviews. The project currently has approximately 25,000 acres under lease with over 100 landowner partners, and the company expects to achieve commercial operation by the end of December 2015.
According to Element Power, the Mill Creek Wind Farm will be an approximately $400 million investment in the state. The project is poised to provide approximately 300 jobs during construction, followed by 12 to 14 full-time jobs during operation, the company adds.
