“Vestas and General Electric (GE) dominate the market for industrial wind turbines in the U.S. Many older U.S. facilities use NEG Micon turbines, and Vestas has absorbed that manufacturer. Other older facilities use turbines from Zond, which was acquired by Enron (the inventor of “green tags”), whose wind business GE acquired in turn to take over the racket. Information about Vestas models can be found at www.vestas.com, GE models at www.gepower.com/businesses/ge_wind_energy/en, Siemens Bonus models at
www.powergeneration.siemens.com/en/windpower/products, Suzlon models at www.suzlon.com./product_overview.htm, Clipper models at www.clipperwind.com, REpower models at www.repower.de/index.php?id=12&L=1. Enercon, Fuhrländer, Mitsubishi, Nordex, and Ecotécnia are also major manufacturers, but their turbines do not appear to be currently used in the U.S.”
