GE will supply 94, 1.6-100 wind turbines for the 150 MW Osage project in Oklahoma, which will provide power to Associated Electric Co-Ops Inc. (AECI), and 134 1.5-82.5 wind turbines for the 201 MW Post Rock project in Kansas, which will supply power to Westar Energy. The GE wind turbines for both projects are scheduled for delivery in the first half of 2012.
