Distributed Energy Systems Corp., a provider of wind power technology, has received an order for one Northwind 100 turbine from Alaska Environmental Power LLC.

The Northwind 100 turbine will be delivered to a proposed 320-acre wind farm located in Delta Junction, at the end of the Alaska Highway. The turbine installation - projected for this summer - follows a "proof of concept" effort that consisted of building a development infrastructure and assessing the wind resource. The company's ultimate vision is to supply 15 MW of renewable power from this location to the Rail Belt Grid in Alaska.

Alaska Environmental Power has applied for a grant from the Denali Commission, which, in conjunction with the Alaska Energy Authority, has developed a program to promote the development of renewable energy resources in Alaska.
