About Jayhawk Wind
The Jayhawk Wind project provides an opportunity to help address Kansas's growing electricity demand with clean, homegrown energy, while diversifying Bourbon and Crawford Counties' economy and supporting jobs in the local community.
Apex Clean Energy of Charlottesville, Virginia, is actively developing Jayhawk Wind, which is expected to generate enough energy to power up to 70,260 homes annually. Located in Bourbon and Crawford Counties, adjacent to existing transmission lines on private land, the area under consideration is suitable for a wind energy project based on local wind data and these attributes:
- Verified wind resource
- Existing high-voltage power lines
- Expansive private land
- Proximity to state highways
Apex is working to engage state and local stakeholders to ensure your questions are answered. This website includes information about wind energy, Neosho Ridge Wind, and important upcoming events. Please use this site to send us feedback, ask questions, and stay up to date on project news and developments as the project moves forward.
AN ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY FOR Bourbon and Crawford Counties
Jayhawk Wind will create jobs and generate an entirely new source of long-term revenue for local schools, government services, and property owners. The project will create hundreds of jobs during construction and long-term positions. Jayhawk Wind is also expected to pay $36 million in state and county taxes over the life of the project.
