Trade Wind Energy, a developing partner of EGPNA will be responsible for the construction of the $350m project which will be equipped with111 Vestas wind turbines V-90 of 1.8 MW each.

Upon completion, the wind plant will be capable of generating 765kWh of energy every year, sufficient to power about 70,000 homes in Kansas.

The Caney River Wind Project is expected to reduce the atmospheric emission of over 580,000 tons of CO2 a year.

Caney River Wind Project committed funding for a Native Environment Conservation Plan focused on the Tallgrass Prairie in Kansas.
