Kansas City Power & Light Co. (KCP&L), a subsidiary of Great Plains Energy Inc., has issued two requests for proposals (RFPs) to add up to 300 MW of additional wind generation in the 2010-2011 time frame.

The first RFP is for proposals to construct and own a 100.5 MW addition at the Spearville Wind Generation Facility - a 100.5 MW wind farm in Spearville, Kan., that became operational in 2006 - and sell the power to KCP&L under a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA) starting in August 2010.

The second RFP has two parts: The first part invites companies, as an alternative to the Spearville addition, to submit proposals to provide KCP&L with 100 MW of wind power through a PPA starting in August 2010, and the second part invites companies to submit proposals for up to an additional 200 MW of wind power starting in October 2011. Proposals under the second part of this RFP could include PPAs or arrangements where KCP&L would own and operate the facilities after development and construction.

The RFPs are available on KCP&L’s Web site at www.kcpl.com. Proposals are due January 11, 2010, at which time KCP&L will begin reviewing the submissions.
