WindSoHy Projects

Wind and CAES

WindSoHy has several large-scale wind/CAES/H2 projects in the early stages of development, including wind, hydrogen, and energy storage projects for clients in the Midwest, South America, and in Asia.


WindSoHy's midwest sites are some of the best in the United States, possessing Category-4 or better wind resources. An important factor in WindSoHy's site selection are geological formations needed for the development of Compressed Air Energy Storage (CAES) plants. 


WindSoHy's Kansas sites possess the wind resources and geological formations needed to transform superior off-peak wind into commercially desirable baseload electrical power using the CAES process.


WindSoHy's sites also have abundant supplies of wastewater needed for the electrolysis in making hydrogen. WindSoHy will use the newest and most highly efficient industrial-scale electrolyzers. Using wind power at night to power the electrolyzers creates H2 that is cheaper than natural gas. Project Characteristics:


The H2 will be used in the Compressed Air Energy Storage (CAES) electricity generation process to heat the stored air before it enters the combustion turbine. Using H2 in this way will create 100% sustainability in WindSoHy's power generation process.

Northwest Kansas

WindSoHy is developing a wind and Compressed Air Energy Storage (CAES) project in a five county region (Logan, Thomas, Sheridan, Gove and Trego counties) in northwest Kansas. The favorable geography has very high quality, Class 4+ winds, and will support at least 400 MW of wind capacity.  


Project characteristics:

  • Anticipated 400 MW wind project comprised of 200 2-MW turbines
  • Lease negotiations are complete for approximately 30,000 acres
  • Potential for 400 MW CAES plant
  • Power Purchase Agreements will be negotiated during pre-production phase
  • Project is located along an existing 345 kilovolt line
  • New, extra-high-voltage line is planned 50 miles east of existing line

Regulatory Status:

  • The project is located in a mostly unzoned area and has support of residents and local governmental authorities. 
  • WindSoHy will begin the permitting process in the near future.

Legal structure:

  • WindSoHy will organize the project as a limited liability corporation with WindSoHy as the 100% managing member.

Orsemus

 WindSoHy is developing a wind power and Compressed Air Energy Storage (CAES) project on approximately 30,000 acres in the Kingman County area, located in south central Kansas. The geography includes high-quality, Class 4+ winds that are favorable for the construction of a 300-600 MW wind-farm facility.  


Project characteristics:

  • Potential for 200 MW CAES plant
  • Anticipated 400 MW wind project comprised of 200 2-MW turbines
  • Lease negotiations near completion for approximately 30,000 acres
  • Project completion approximately 2014
  • Power Purchase Agreements to be negotiated during pre-production
  • Project location near a 345 kilovolt line

 Regulatory Status : 

  • The project is planned for a mostly unzoned location and has support of residents and local governmental authorities. 
  • Permitting process will begin during project development.

Legal Structure:  

  • WindSoHy will organize the project as a limited liability corporation with WindSoHy as the 100% managing member.
