Wind developer Renewable Energy Systems (RES) Americas Inc., a subsidiary of U.K.-based RES, has signed agreements exceeding $700 million to receive GE Energy 1.5 MW wind turbines for projects in 2009 and 2010.

GE Energy will supply RES with nearly 500 MW of new wind energy capacity and will provide commissioning and operations services as well as maintenance support.

"Throughout the United States, we continue to witness strong interest in the production of cleaner, wind-generated electricity," says Victor Abate, vice president of renewables for GE Energy. "We are pleased that RES has selected our well-proven, 1.5 MW technology to help the company reach its build-out goals for the years ahead."
