Topeka, Kan.-based Westar Energy Inc. and BP Alternative Energy North America Inc. plan to conduct a ground breaking ceremony today for the Flat Ridge Wind Farm site in Nashville, Kan.

The Flat Ridge Wind Farm is a 100 MW project developed by BP. Westar will own half of the wind farm and purchase energy from the remaining half. Flat Ridge will utilize 40 Clipper 2.5 MW C-96 wind turbine generators.

"Barber County is blessed with an abundance of wind that is ideal for generating clean, renewable energy," says Bill Moore, Westar Energy president and CEO. "The energy produced at Flat Ridge will benefit our customers, Kansas and the region."

Flat Ridge is expected to go online by the end of the year.
