Massachusetts, Unites States [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] Mass Megawatts Wind Power, Inc. announced last week that the company has recently opened a manufacturing facility in Pennsylvania. The new facility will be located near numerous planned projects in Pennsylvania and New York where several hundred megawatts (MW) of wind power projects have already been developed in the recent years.
Mass Megawatts has chosen to locate a production facility in Pennsylvania because of the state’s dedication and leadership in the field of renewable energy, including wind power. Pennsylvania has enough wind power potential to provide electricity for nearly 5 million homes according to Pennsylvania Governor Edward G. Rendell. Pennsylvania’s green power purchase is 28% of the state government’s annual electricity consumption.
In addition to Pennsylvania, other states including Massachusetts, Texas and Michigan have recently created similar favorable incentives for wind energy development including major plans to increase transmission facilities for over 12,000 MW of new wind energy capacity in Texas. Mass Megawatts plans to review the incentives and opportunities of other states in planning the company’s expansion and other production facilities.
