Sunflower Electric Power Corp., a Hays, Kan.-headquartered wholesale power supplier, has agreed to purchase 50.4 MW of wind energy from TradeWind Energy LLC, a Lenexa, Kan.-based wind energy developer.

"We view this agreement as a platform for Sunflower and TradeWind to develop projects together in the future," says Bob Johnson, Sunflower's executive manager of engineering and energy services.
According to the companies, this agreement is for a 20-year term.
