    $700 MIL: GE LANDS ANOTHER TURBINE DEAL

    The rise of GE Energy in the turbine manufacturing sector is a huge U.S. success story. Production of turbines has grown 500% since 2004. GE sold more than $4.5 billion worth of turbines in 2007 alone. In the last 2 years GE has produced more than one-half of total U.S. wind energy capacity. Globally, there are more than 8,000 GE 1.5-megawatt turbines in use. It is the most widely used turbine in the world.

    There may be something to this ecomagination thing. (click to enlarge)
