Study: Kan. could be exporter of renewable energy

Kansas has the potential to become a major exporter of renewable energy, producing many new jobs and new tax revenue, a national study found.

Lt. Gov. Mark Parkinson and members of the American Council on Renewable Energy presented the report on Monday during a webcast. The study was by the Joint Coordinated System, a group of regional transmission operators including the Southern Power Pool, which Kansas is a part of.

The study calculated the state’s maximum wind potential at 19 gigawatts by 2030 and projected 1 megawatt of power annually each from solar and bio-energy.

The study found tremendous potential to market Kansas energy to places such as Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana and Georgia.
