Charlotte, N.C., October 18, 2011 – Duke Energy announced agreements with Siemens and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries to provide wind turbines for the two phases of Duke Energy’s Los Vientos Windpower Project in Willacy County, Texas.

Siemens will provide 87 2.3-MW wind turbines for Duke Energy Renewables’ 200-MW Los Vientos I Windpower Project. MHI was chosen to supply 84 2.4-MW turbines for the 202-MW Los Vientos II Windpower Project. Both sites expect the first delivery of turbines by early June 2012.
