Invenergy Wind LLC is looking ahead to 2009. The energy company plans to secure 800 MW of wind turbines for 2009 projects in both North America and Europe.
Invenergy Wind LLC announced that it has contracted with General Electric Company to purchase an additional 800 MW of wind turbines for use in projects slated for construction in 2009 in North America and Europe. Along with Invenergy’s previous purchases of 600 MW for 2007 and 700 MW for 2008 from GE, this provides 2,100 MW of wind turbines for Invenergy’s 2007, 2008 and 2009 build programs. These turbines are slated for Invenergy’s projects in the US, Canada and Europe.
Currently, Invenergy projects include more than 1,200 megawatts of wind energy either in operation or under construction at 13 different facilities. Invenergy estimates that these projects will generate more than 3.6 billion kilowatt hours of electricty each year. The company says that´s enough “clean and renewable” energy to power nearly 400,000 homes.
