The Peetz Table Wind Energy Center was constructed in two phases. The first phase of the north-eastern Colorado wind project was completed in 2001 and brought 29.7 megawatts onto the grid.[citation needed] Project owner NextEra Energy Resources[1] then added an additional 400 MW's in 2007, bringing the total capacity to nearly 430 MW. Utilizing 33 NEG Micon turbines for phase 1[citation needed] and 267 General Electric turbines for phase 2, the Peetz Table Wind Energy Center is one of the United States' largest wind projects.[2]

In 2007, it was projected that the wind farm would have approximately 20 full-time employees when completed.[2]
