KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ A largest wind farm in Kansas is scheduled to start operating within days in the southern part of the state with the capacity to provide electricity to 160,000 homes.
Flint Ridge 2 is jointly owned by BP Wind Energy and Sempra U.S. Gas and Power. It will have 294 wind turbines on 66,000 acres in parts of Harper, Barber, Kingman and Sumner counties.
A BP spokesman declined to say when the $800 million project will begin operating other than it's planned by the ``end of the year.''
BP says it has more land in Kansas where it can place turbines. But The Kansas City Star reports plans are on hold until the future of the Production Tax Credit is resolved.
The credit expires at the end of the month.
