Charlotte, N.C.-based Duke Energy has announced that it is expanding its renewable energy portfolio through a contract to purchase 100 1.5 MW wind turbines from General Electric (GE).

The turbines, capable of generating a total of 150 MW, are anticipated to be in service in the 2009-2010 time frame on sites currently under review in the western and southwestern U.S.

"Our agreement with General Electric increases our investment in the wind business and further expands Duke Energy's renewable energy fleet," says David Marks, DEGS senior vice president for wind energy development.

Terms of the contract with GE were not disclosed.
