Waverly Light and Power, headquartered in Waverly, Iowa, has purchased two AWE54 900 kW wind turbines from Americas Wind Energy Inc. (AWEC) in a $3.4 million investment.

The turbines are scheduled to be in operation by summer 2008 and together will provide over four million kWh of electricity. According to Waverly Light and Power, the units will be located east of Waverly, one on the Remley Farm and the other on an adjacent 70-acre farm site.

"We searched to find extremely durable units featuring direct drive technology new to this country," says Glenn Cannon, general manager of Waverly Light and Power. "We're excited about pioneering this technology in the Midwest and the United States."
