CPV Wind is backed by private equity and it secured a large block of wind turbines from GE to support its development portfolio earlier this year. “With the rapid expansion of the wind industry in the United States and the consolidation of the developer component of the industry, it has become increasingly clear that access to significant capital is required for success,” said Disgen founder and wind industry pioneer Dale Osborn, President and CEO of Disgen.
