Liberty’s Clean Energy Transition
Liberty’s transition to clean, renewable wind energy protects our environment through lower carbon emissions and saves customers money over the long term compared to other energy generation. Liberty's wind project is expected to generate savings for customers of approximately $169 million over a 20-year period and approximately $300 million over a 30-year period.
A look at our wind farms:
Liberty's generation of 600 mw of wind energy includes three wind-farm locations
North Fork Ridge, located in Barton County, Missouri near Mindenmines, began serving energy to the Southwest Power Pool in September 2020 and declared full commercial operation December 31, 2020.
Kings Point, located in Dade, Jasper, and Lawrence Counties near Lockwood, Missouri, began commercial operation April 21, 2021.
Neosho Ridge Wind in Neosho County, Kansas near Galesburg, began commercial operation on May 1, 2021.

Wind benefits our local communities
Wind farms bring jobs, tax revenue, and additional economic benefits to the communities and states where they are located.
Keeping energy costs competitive helps our communities retain jobs and attract development
Generating up to 600 MW in our region means more than $1 billion in investment, plus landowners get a new source of steady income and tax revenue is created for local communities
Cleaner energy helps make our communities healthier, and more sustainable
