Wind energy projects to use GE turbines

GE (NYSE: GE) and Wind Capital Group have signed deals for 228 wind turbines and the accompanying operations and maintenance services for two projects in Oklahoma and Kansas. The projects combined will provide more than 350 MW of wind energy for the Midwest.

GE will supply 94, 1.6-100 wind turbines for the 150 MW Osage project in Oklahoma, which will provide power to Associated Electric Co-Ops Inc. (AECI), and 134 1.5-82.5 wind turbines for the 201 MW Post Rock project in Kansas, which will supply power to Westar Energy. The GE wind turbines for both projects are scheduled for delivery in the first half of 2012.

The two new projects will increase Wind Capital Group’s U.S. wind power portfolio to more than half a gigawatt.
