With Duke Energy’s Kit Carson Windpower Project in eastern Colorado now on line and producing electricity, the company has nearly 1,000 megawatts of wind generation capacity in operation at nine U.S. wind farms.

All of the output from the Kit Carson site will serve customers of Tri-State Generation and Transmission’s member electric cooperatives and public power districts through a 20-year power purchase agreement. Kit Carson consists of 34 General Electric wind turbines capable of producing 1.5 megawatts (MW) each, for a total of 51 MW. Construction at the 6,000-acre wind farm northwest of Burlington, Colo., began earlier this year and the facility achieved commercial operation on Nov. 19.

Kit Carson is the second commercial wind project Duke Energy brought on line in 2010. The company’s 110-turbine, 200-MW Top of the World Windpower Project near Casper, Wyo., reached commercial operation in October.

Duke Energy has invested more than $1 billion to grow its commercial wind power business over the last three years. The company brought the following wind farms on line prior to 2010:

* The 283-MW (net Duke capacity) Sweetwater Windpower Project in Nolan County, Texas
