HARPER, Kan. (AP) _ Construction is under way in south-central
Kansas of what's expected to be the state's largest wind farm.

State officials joined representatives of BP Wind Energy and
Sempra U.S. Gas & Power on Wednesday to mark the start of work on
the Flat Ridge 2 wind farm in Harper County.

Gov. Sam Brownback said in a news release the project is
important for the nation's energy production and revitalizing rural
Kansas.

The $800 million wind farm is located on a 66,000-acre site
about 40 miles southwest of Wichita.
