Westar Energy (WR -1.2%) is buying another 200MW of wind power from a NextEra Energy (NEE -0.9%) affiliate. The energy will be produced at a Kingman County, KS wind farm set to go live in early 2017. Westar will have the option to buy half the facility before "substantial completion."

The purchase will bring Westar's total wind capacity above 1.7GW. NextEra, meanwhile, is 18 months removed from doing an IPO for its NextEra Energy Partners solar/wind plant unit.
