Green Inc. reported last week on a $1.4billion wind deal signed last week.  The Oregon project will feature 338 GE turbines that have the capacity to produce 845 MW of power, making it the largest wind turbine committment of the year, according to GE.  The announcement paid close attention to the issue of green job creation after the drama over a West Texas project that featured Chinese turbines. The GE turbines will be assembled in Florida and more than half of the parts will be made in the United States. Addionally, 400 temporary jobs will be created during the construction of the project, set to take place in 2011-12.
