Renewable Energy Systems Americas Inc. (RES Americas) has begun construction on the 250 MW Buffalo Dunes wind project, located southwest of Garden City, Kan. Alabama Power Co. will buy the majority of the electricity from the project under a 20-year power purchase agreement.

RES Americas will oversee the deployment of 135 GE turbines, and GE will provide operations and maintenance after completion. Buffalo Dunes is being jointly developed with Kansas-based TradeWind Energy LLC and is owned by GE Energy Financial Services and Enel Green Power North America.

The project is expected be completed by December.
