GE Boosts Stakes in Two U.S. Wind Farms Jointly Owned With Enel

General Electric Co. expanded its minority stakes in two Enel Green Power SpA wind farms in the U.S. for $74 million.

GE Energy Financial Services already owned 25 percent of the Chisholm View and Prairie Rose wind farms and acquired an additional 24 percent of each, according to a statement Monday from Enel Green Power, the renewable-energy unit of Italy’s biggest utility.

The 235-megawatt Chisholm View project in Oklahoma and the 200-megawatt Prairie Rose wind farm in Minnesota have both been operational since 2012. The two companies recently established a joint venture, EGPNA Renewable Energy Partners LLC, to operate the wind farms.
