GE says it is working with an extensive supplier network and its sister GE manufacturing plant in Peterborough, Ontario, to meet the local-content requirements established under the province's Green Energy Act.

According to GE, the Peterborough facility is currently ramping up to assemble the hubs of wind turbines to support projects in the province.

The company says it is modeling its Ontario wind project plans after local-content experience in Brazil and Quebec, where it enabled a quick supply chain ramp-up through its local manufacturing and supplier presence.

Eleven wind energy projects in Ontario will utilize GE turbines, and by 2015, GE wind turbines in the region will deliver approximately 1.2 GW of wind energy in Ontario, according to the company.

This year, GE also will complete the delivery of 593 of its 1.5-77 machines for eight projects in Quebec. These projects fulfilled a 2003 request for proposals to supply Quebec with 1 GW of new wind power capacity by the end of this year. GE’s local supply-chain manufacturing and supplier partners in Quebec have been integral to the success of this project, the company notes.
