Ground-Breaking for Westar's 100-MW Wind Farm in Kansas

LCG, June 25, 2008--Westar Energy Inc. and BP Alternative Energy North America Inc. held the ground breaking ceremony yesterday for the Flat Ridge Wind Farm site in Nashville, Kansas. The project is scheduled to be connected to the grid and produce power by the end of 2008.

The Flat Ridge Wind Farm will include 40 Clipper 2.5 MW C-96 wind turbine generators that are to be delivered next month. BP developed the project on the 5,000 acre site, which is located approximately 60 miles southwest of Wichita. Westar will own half of the wind project and buy energy from the other half under a power purchase agreement (PPA).

Westar has two similar wind projects planned: Meridian Way Wind Farm in Cloud County and Central Plains Wind Farm in Wichita County. The combined electric generating capacity of the three plants is 300 MW.
