HOUSTON (AP) — BP Wind Energy has reached a $750 million deal with General Electric Co. to supply and maintain 350 turbines for wind farms in Pennsylvania and Kansas.

The agreement was announced Thursday.

Houston-based BP Wind Energy says GE has agreed to deliver 88 turbines to the Mehoopany Wind Farm, located 20 miles northwest of Scranton, Pa. The other 262 turbines are meant for BP’s Flat Ridge 2 Wind Farm, about 60 miles southwest of Wichita, Kan.

BP says both projects are expected to be generating power by late 2012, with a combined capability of 560 megawatts.
