1.7-100/103 Wind Turbine

GE’s 1.7-100/103

The GE 1.7-100 and 1.7-103 wind turbines offer up to a 47 percent increase in swept area (compared to the GE 1.6-82.5 turbine).  This can result in a 24 percent increase in Annual Energy Production (AEP) at 7.5 m/s.

The increase in blade swept area provides greater energy capture and improved project economics. The 1.7-100 uses GE’s proprietary 48.7-meter blade which has an aerodynamic shape shared with the blades found on the 2.5-100 turbine.
