Wind Farm Developer Chooses 15 US Sites

August 12, 2004 [SolarAccess.com] U.S. Wind Farming (USWF) — which claims to be the only publicly traded company specifically devoted to wind power developments — has selected its first 15 agricultural sites to install the 1.5 MW and 2.5 MW GE wind turbines in the United States. GE Wind Energy, Vaisala Group and Rosendin Electric will be commissioned to evaluate these sites for renewable energy development. USWF is anticipating that these sites will produce in excess of 225-MW of power with over $12 million in revenues during the upcoming year. The company is currently working in concert with the Department of Agriculture and the Department of Energy to orchestrate the implementation of Agricultural Renewable Energy Cooperatives nationwide. The company said these cooperatives help to remove America’s dependence on foreign energy while, at the same time, provide a cost-effective renewable energy source, create jobs and clean up the nation’s environment.
