Kansas Could Become Major Exporter Of Renewable Energy
04/28/2009

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

Kansas Gov. Mark Parkinson and members of the American Council on Renewable Energy presented the report Monday during a webcast when he was at the time the Lt. Gov. The study was by the Joint Coordinated System.

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.

But the state must overcome expensive costs and start increasing production.

The study said Kansas could see $23 billion in cumulative economic impact and 12,000 jobs from now through 2030.
