GE turbines selected for wind power projects in Michigan

GE (NYSE: GE) has received contracts to supply 137 wind turbines to DTE Energy (NYSE: DTE) for wind projects in Michigan. With a total capacity of 220 MW, GE said the projects support Michigan’s renewable portfolio standard (RPS), which mandates the state to produce 10 percent of its power from renewable sources by 2015.

GE is supplying DTE Energy with 69 advanced 1.6-100 wind turbines for its Sigel, Minden and McKinley projects and 68 1.6-100 units for its wind project in Chandler Township. In the latter project, DTE Energy will file for approval from the Michigan Public Service Commission later this year.

DTE Energy’s total investment in these projects is $500 million.
