Turbine company Suzlon notes that during the polar vortex that hit northern U.S. states last month, 71 of the company's machines situated in the region each produced a record 1 million kWh.

"I am proud of Suzlon turbines and my team of technicians and achieving an extremely high volume of kWhs for our customers in the middle of this harsh winter," says Duncan Koerbel, Suzlon Wind Energy Corp.'s CEO, Suzlon Energy Ltd.'s chief technology officer and head of global operations.

“It is not easy working in below-zero temperatures to maintain these turbines,” he continues. “Additionally, we managed to maintain high safety standards during the same timeframe even with the increased hazards.”

Wind power proved a helpful resource across the country during the polar vortex. Utilities, such as the Nebraska Public Power District, and grid operators, such as the New York Independent System Operator, relied on wind power to help meet boosts in energy demand.
