Invenergy Wind to purchase another 800 MW of wind turbines from GE
TORONTO, ONT-Invenergy Wind LLC has contracted with General Electric to purchase an additional 800 megawatts (MW) of wind turbines for use in its North American and European projects slated for 2009 construction. Along with Invenergy's previous purchases from GE of 600 MW for 2007 and 700 MW for 2008, these purchases total 2,100 MW of turbines for Invenergy's 2007, 2008 and 2009 building program in the U.S., Canada and Europe. Invenergy Wind currently has 13 wind energy facilities representing more than 1,200 MW of projects in operation or under construction in North America and Europe. Together, these renewable energy projects are expected to generate more than 3.6 billion kilowatt hours of electricity annually, enough to power almost 400,000 homes. Invenergy Wind Canada is developing wind energy projects across the country and is participating in all Requests for Proposals for clean renewable wind energy from Canadian provincial utilities and agencies.
