GE to install WindControl software for First Wind projects

GE will install WindControl advanced software to help maximize energy output at two First Wind projects in Maine. The two wind farms are located in Rollins and Stetson. The Rollins site has 40 GE 1.5-77 turbines while Stetson contains 55 turbines. The WindControl software automatically controls the output of each wind turbine in the wind farm, versus an approach that depends on starting and stopping units to match changes in power demand.
