Microsoft to Use Kansas Wind Farm for Data Center

KSAL StaffNovember 16, 2016

Microsoft has announced that it will purchase 178 megawatts of production from a wind farm under construction near Dodge City.

The Wichita Eagle  reports that the purchase from Bloom Wind will be a portion of the 237 megawatts of alternative energy Microsoft is buying to supply through the grid to its Cheyenne, Wyoming, data center.The wind farm will consist of 54 towers across 15,000 acres of privately-owned land about 20 miles south of Dodge City in Ford and Clark counties.

Capital Power will operate the wind farm and has contracted the facility’s output to a subsidiary of Allianz, which plans to sell the power to Microsoft for 10 years.
