Kansas will begin issuing new personalized license plates Wednesday that emphasize the state's growth in using renewable energy. 

The plates will feature wind turbines profiled against a sunrise. Kansas Department of Revenue Secretary Mark Burghart says Kansas has become a leader in alternative energy. A report last year said Kansas was the nation's top producer of wind energy, with more than 36% of total electricity coming from wind power. 

Residents can order the “Powering the Future” plates through their county treasurer’s office for $45.50, plus normal registration fees and taxes.
