FLAT RIDGE III
The Flat Ridge III Wind project began construction in the spring of 2020 and will have the capacity to generate 128 megawatts (MW) of clean wind energy. The project, located in Kingman County, Kansas, will utilize 62 state-of-the-art wind turbines to provide safe, renewable and reliable electricity to Evergy, Inc.
Flat Ridge III Wind will provide an estimated $20 million in economic development to the central Kansas region. Payments from the project will benefit local schools and government, the Kingman County community and the state of Kansas.
This project will create approximately 200 temporary construction jobs at peak activity and permanent jobs to operate and maintain the wind farm. Lease and royalty revenue from Flat Ridge III will be paid to local landowners and will enable them to diversify and supplement their income.
AEP Renewables is committed to being a good neighbor to Kingman County and beyond. In April 2020, a donation was made to a local organization, BrightHouse, to support their efforts in combating domestic violence. We will continue to be a good community neighbor and will support local non-profits and community organizations throughout the life of the project.
