GE Energy Financial Services has invested equity in three Atria Power wind projects under construction in India. Financial details were not disclosed, but the company says this further supports GE's commitment to invest $1 billion annually in renewable energy projects worldwide.

The wind farms will have a combined capacity of 126 MW, 76 MW of which will come from GE turbines. Another manufacturer will supply and service the additional turbines to generate the remaining 50 MW. Atria Power is managing construction and operations.

The 25.6 MW first project is expected to reach commercial operations in September. The two other projects, each 50 MW, are expected to reach commercial operations in December and June 2015, respectively.
