Wind power in Kansas is not a new concept. Ranchers continue to utilize windmills to fill stock tanks, just as their forefathers did during the 1800's. Recent research shows that Kansas ranks third in the nation for potential electricity production from wind power.

Although the energy in wind is free, the equipment is not. Accurate siting, social and legal aspects, energy backup systems, system installation, and operating and maintenance are some aspects that must be examined before production is possible.

The Kansas Wind Energy 2000 Conference offers those with interest in wind energy the opportunity to explore all facets of potential wind energy production. We invite you to join us at Kansas Wind Energy 2000 and find out how you can enjoy the environmental, economic and social benefits of clean energy in your home and community.
