GE will supply 59 of recently debuted 1.7-100 wind turbines to NextEra Energy Resources LLC's wind farm planned for the thumb region of Michigan.

GE says the 1.7-100 wind turbine is the second "brilliant" wind turbine in its portfolio, following the 2.5-120. The 1.7-100 advances the company's 1.6-100 wind turbine series by using electrical system upgrades and the the industrial Internet to connect data points across the turbine's ecosystem, GE adds.

“Wind turbine innovation is key to the continued growth of the wind industry, and we look forward to installing this new 1.7 MW technology machine,” says Armando Pimentel, president and CEO of NextEra Energy Resources.
