Kansas wind project packs a punch TradeWind Energy's MW Caney River wind project in southeastern Kansas packed a punch when it came to delivering economic benefits to the local community. At a time when the U. Elk County, in southeastern Kansas, has seen economic challenges for a number of years.
Like many rural areas in the U. Losing residents also makes it more difficult for the county to maintain its tax base and pay for all the services, everything from maintaining roads to funding local schools.
So it's no surprise that when Kansas-based TradeWind Energy came forward with a solid plan for a wind energy project in Elk County, local government officials viewed it positively. There were other local spinoffs from the project as well: It's not very often that you get to make that big of a difference as the Caney River project did with Elk County.
TradeWind Energy started doing the groundwork for the project back in It was focused on accessing the high voltage network that is in the eastern part of Kansas. The transmission capacity was the critical component that led to the Caney River project being built.
Power generated from the project's Vestas V The TVA is the country's largest public power company, serving customers in nine states.
The wind resource they are working with in eastern Kansas will generate enough electricity to provide power for the equivalent of 60, homes.
But relative to the rest of the country, it's robust and a very good wind resource," says Gilhousen. Despite the project's name, the Caney River itself actually has no influence on wind in the area—Caney River just describes the general area where the project is located.
The mile-long river originates in Elk County and eventually flows into northeastern Oklahoma. In many areas, the river is more of a flatwater stream.
The site is primarily pasture land, with some cultivated land. TradeWind Energy arranged leases with a relatively small number of farmers and ranchers for the project's nearly 14, acres. Landowners viewed the project very positively, since it means extra revenue for them. As a sign of how mainstream wind energy has become, Gilhousen said the landowners were pretty much up to speed on wind power.
People have probably been knocking on their doors, and they've heard the pitch and educated themselves. But we usually start with the two percent figure, just to get the landowners' minds around a number. But there are still a significant number of federal, state, and local permits and authorizations to be obtained, and we worked very closely with all of those parties.

Tradewind Energy, one of the largest independent renewable energy development companies in the United States, is launching a new solar production facility in Orangeburg County, South Carolina.
The project is expected to bring approximately $85 million in new capital investment. Tradewind credits increases in utility demand for renewable energy and corporate commitments to sustainability goals for its development growth, and investment by U.S.
