Cedar Bluff Wind seeks market authority for 200-MW project in Kansas

Cedar Bluff Wind LLC applied Sept. 18 at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission for authorization to make market-based sales of energy, capacity and certain ancillary services under a market-based rate tariff out of its wind project in Kansas.

Cedar Bluff will own and operate a wind farm with a nameplate capacity of approximately 200 MW located in Ness, Ellis and Trego counties, Kansas, within the Southwest Power Pool balancing authority area. The facility will interconnect with Midwest Energy. The project is due to be in-service on Nov. 17 of this year.

Applicant has entered into a long-term power purchase agreement with an unnamed non-affiliate for 100% of the power produced by the facility, including the test energy. Cedar Bluff Wind said it has submitted a notice of self-certification as an exempt wholesale generator to the commission.

The company is an indirect subsidiary of NextEra Energy Resources LLC, which is part of Florida-based NextEra Energy (NYSE: NEE).
