enXco Inc., an Escondido, Calif.-based wind farm developer, has purchased an additional 276 MW of GE Wind's 1.5 MW turbines for the development of its 2007 and 2008 projects in the Midwest. According to the companies, 75 MW of the wind turbines are to be delivered in 2007 and the remaining turbines are scheduled for delivery in 2008.
