Our portfolio of onshore wind turbines

At GE, product evolution is at our core, and we are continuously working to develop the next generation of wind energy. Beginning in 2002 with one wind turbine model, we now offer a full suite of turbines created for a variety of wind environments. We offer increased value to customers with proven performance, reliability, and availability. Our portfolio of onshore wind turbines feature rated capacities from 1.7 MW to 5.3 MW, we are uniquely suited to meet the needs of a broad range of wind regimes. 

Our latest innovation in the Industrial Internet era, The Digital Wind Farm, is making our turbines smarter and more connected than ever before. A dynamic, connected and adaptable wind energy ecosystem, the Digital Wind Farm pairs our newest turbines with a digital infrastructure, allowing customers to connect, monitor, predict and optimize unit and site performance.

What are Wind Turbines and How do They Work?

Wind is a clean, free, and readily available renewable energy source. Every day around the world, wind turbines are capturing the wind’s power and converting it to electricity.  With over 40,000 wind turbines installed globally, GE is one of the world's leading turbine suppliers. 

Wind turbines allow us to harness the power of the wind and turn it into energy. When the wind blows, the turbine's blades spin clockwise, capturing energy. This triggers the main shaft, connected to a gearbox within the nacelle, to spin. The gearbox sends that energy to the generator, converting it to electricity. Electricity then travels down the tower to a transformer, where voltage levels are adjusted to match with the grid.
