Renewable Energy Systems Americas Inc. (RES Americas) has started construction on the 250 MW Buffalo Dunes wind project, located southwest of Garden City, Kan.

The project was developed by TradeWind Energy LLC and is jointly owned by GE Energy Financial Services and Enel Green Power North America. As the general contractor, RES Americas will oversee construction of the Buffalo Dunes wind farm.

RES Americas says the wind project, which will use 135 GE turbines, is expected to employ 150 construction workers and create 15 permanent jobs. In addition to turbines, GE Energy Financial Services is investing in the project, and GE will provide operations and maintenance after completion. Alabama Power Co. will buy most of the electricity from the project under a 20-year agreement.
