Andover, MA January 17th, 2017 - Enel Green Power North America, Inc. (“EGPNA”) has signed master supply agreements with three separate top-tier wind turbine manufacturers to support the future development in the United States of approximately 3.5 GW of new wind capacity, not yet under construction.
“Through these agreements we will continue our strategy to grow in wind and invest in the US, seeking to nearly double our operating capacity over the next four years,” said Rafael Gonzalez, Head of Enel Green Power North America. “This purchase further strengthens our position in the market as a leader in renewable energy and will also lead to millions in local economic investment and the creation of thousands of jobs as we execute the construction and operation of these plants.”
