Wind developer OwnEnergy Inc. has signed a 20-year purchase power agreement (PPA) with the Kansas City Board of Public Utilities (BPU) for 25 MW generated by the 50 MW Alexander wind farm, to be located south of Alexander, Kan.

OwnEnergy says the PPA will help the BPU have wind energy equal to 10% of its peak demand and 22% of its peak in renewables when the wind farm goes online. This exceeds Kansas' renewable portfolio standard, which currently requires electric utilities to have at least 10% of their peak demand from renewable resources through 2015, 15% in 2016 and 20% beginning in 2020.

The developer expects the energy to be available to the BPU in October 2015.
