“This is a great opportunity for a company to repower or replace an existing unit,” explains Chad Farrell, Managing Partner at Tru-Markets. ”We are pleased to be able to offer this unit to the wind power market.”

According to the American Wind Energy Association, the U.S. wind energy industry had its strongest year ever in 2012, installing a record 13,124 megawatts (MW) of electric generating capacity, leveraging $25 billion in private investment, and achieving over 60,000 MW of cumulative wind capacity.

In addition, companies that generate wind energy are eligible for a Production Tax Credit (PTC), which provides a 2.2-cent per kilowatt-hour (kWh) benefit for the first ten years of a renewable energy facility's operation. In January, the U.S. Congress extended the PTC for wind and included an important new provision that allows wind and other eligible renewable energy projects that begin construction in 2013 to qualify for the credit.
