Wind is a clean, renewable, and a homegrown source of energy. Additionally, wind power plays a vital role in our world’s energy future.
A recent report by the American Wind Energy Association, points to wind power as being one of the fastest growing forms of new electricity generation in the U.S. In recent years, around 40% of all new generation capacity added to the electric grid in the U.S. was from wind power projects. Electric utilities are increasingly adding wind power to their power supply portfolios, as a clean, inexhaustible, and domestic source of electric generation.
Wind has the potential of meeting a major part of the world’s electricity needs, with the U.S. government and industry goals to generate over 20% of our electricity from wind power by the year 2030. For wind generation to meet these aggressive goals, the market demands high availability, increased levels of energy capture and reliability, reduced operations costs, and advanced grid integration capabilities to support widespread deployment.
At Northern Power Systems, we are proud to introduce the Northern Power 2.3 megawatt
(NPS 2.3) advanced permanent magnet direct drive wind turbine that provides a new solution to address the demands of today’s utility wind market.
