Westar wants 80 MW of renewable energy

The Topeka, Kansas-based electric utility is looking to partner with a developer to build and operate a renewable power project

Westar Energy is requesting proposals for the addition of at least 80 MW of renewable energy potential to its electric power generation portfolio.

The Topeka, Kansas-based electric utility is looking to partner with a developer to build and operate a renewable power project, with the goal of commercial operation by 2016.

All forms of renewable energy, including solar energy, wind power and landfill gas-to-energy will be considered, according to Westar Energy.

The extra capacity will not be enough to replace any traditional power plants, according to the utility.
