GE Energy will supply 300 of its 1.5MW wind turbines to Noble Environmental Power for 2007 and 2008 projects that will increase New York State's wind power capacity by 450MW.
The company will use the new GE turbines for the second phases of the Bliss Windpark, located in Wyoming County in western New York; and the Clinton Windpark, located in Clinton County in northern New York. Plans call for selling all of the power from the wind projects to the New York Independent System Operator (NYISO) for dispatch through the state electricity grid. The projects will create about 800 local construction jobs and more than 40 permanent operation and maintenance jobs.
