Consortium Using Stimulus Cash To Erect Chinese Made Wind Generators

A consortium of American and Chinese companies, using Chinese bank financing and US government grants and loans under the stimulus legislation, plans to build a $1.5 billion wind farm on 36,000 acres in West Texas, using 240 2.5 megawatt wind turbines manufactured in Shenyang, China.

Construction is scheduled to begin next March, when the first turbines will be arriving on site. The project will create 300 temporary and 30 permanent jobs, and when completed, should generate 600 megawatts of wind power. Companies involved in the project include A-Power Energy Generation Systems, U. S. Renewable energy Group, and Cielo Wind Power.
