WindPower Innovations, Inc. (Pinksheets:WPNV), a wind power infrastructure and smart grid solutions company, announced it has been selected by GWS Technologies, Inc. (Pinksheets:GWSC) to provide equipment and services for GWS Technologies' Colorado Plateau Wind Energy I, a 1500 acre commercial wind farm under development northeast of Flagstaff, Arizona.

In addition to WindPower Innovations' next generation Grid-Tie Inverter solutions and Turbines, the company will bring a comprehensive range of services to the Colorado Plateau wind project, including access to WindPower Innovations' heavy lift facility, crane services, construction and ongoing turbine maintenance. 

"Northern Arizona offers tremendous opportunities for utility-scale wind power, and we are excited to be working with GWS Technologies to develop wind power on the Colorado Plateau," says John Myers, President and CEO of WindPower Innovations. "Arizona utilities are required to generate 15 percent of their power from renewable energy sources, such as wind turbines and solar panels, by 2025 to meet state requirements, and now is the time to tap into Arizona's wind energy potential to meet that goal."
