General Electric is on pace to establish a new company record for wind-power installations in the U.S. this year, topping its previous record of 3.99 gigawatts in 2009, said Matt Guyette, general manager for strategy and market development at GE Wind and Solar. GE's projections are in tune with the American Wind Energy Association's forecast that the U.S. will install somewhere between 12 GW and 13.5 GW in wind capacity this year, Guyette said. "We haven't released our numbers, but it will be a record year in the U.S.," Guyette said.
