New wind power deal in OR

News today over at "Green Inc.", that a new deal has been struck involving a large wind power project in Oregon.  Most of the parts for the project will be/have been made in the US, and the project will have about 845 megawatts of power capacity.  338 turbines are planned, meaning each one on average has a capacity of 2.5 megawatts.

While not in total a huge amount of power for the US, this is a great step forward in clean, renewable, home-grown energy.  Now we need about a hundred more like it.
