Kansas is a national leader in wind resource potential.
This wind energy translates into savings for electricity customers. Kansas lies in the Southwest Power Pool (SPP), where wind power saved electricity customers $1.2 billion in 2013. Wind is also creating economic development for the state, where major wind turbine manufacturer Siemens currently operates a $50 million nacelle assembly facility in Hutchinson, Kansas. The effects of this investment will be felt throughout the Kansas supply chain, allowing an ever increasing number of Kansas firms to participate in the wind energy industry.
