Citizens has announced that it has entered into a power purchase agreement with Ørsted, supporting the construction of the Sunflower Wind Project, which will match 100% of Citizens’ power consumption across its entire operational footprint with renewable energy credits.
The Sunflower Wind Project is a 200MW wind generation facility in Marion County, Kansas, USA. Ørsted began construction of the project in 2022 and by 2023 it is expected to be operational. Citizens’ share of the project is 25.8 MW. Citizens is making a long-term commitment to buy a share of the renewable electricity produced by the wind project. The electricity generated will be delivered to and resold in the local electricity grid while Citizens utilises the associated renewable energy credits (RECs) to achieve 100% renewable power.
