Target Corp. agreed to buy 100 megawatts of output from an Infinity Renewables wind project in Kansas.

Power from the 474-megawatt Solomon Forks wind facility will help offset the energy used at 150 Target stores in the area, Santa Barbara, California-based Infinity said in an emailed statement Wednesday. Terms weren’t disclosed.

Construction is expected to begin and be completed next year.

About a year ago, Target announced its first wind deal — to buy 40 megawatts of capacity from a wind project in Texas to meet the needs of 60 of its stores in the state.
