Global Wind Systems Inc. will be investing $32 million in the maker of delivery-ready, large-scale wind turbines.

A new state law that will require the state to draw at least 10 percent of its energy from alternative sources by 2015 helped spur the investment. Since its passage last year, more than two dozen alternative energy companies have emerged across the state, according to the article.

The state of Ohio also recently passed a similar law.
