GE Energy will supply 74 of its 1.5 MW wind turbines to begin the expansion of Invenergy Wind's Grand Ridge Energy Center in LaSalle County, Ill., which, when completed, will increase the country's wind power capacity by over 110 MW.

"The availability of stimulus funds paves the way for a new wave of growth for the American wind industry," says John Krenicki, president and CEO of GE Energy. "We encourage others in the wind industry to follow Invenergy's example and move forward with their plans to develop new wind farms to help meet the nation's demand for cleaner energy."
