BWEN Stock’s Future Orders

This was partially motivated by the delay of several projects into the second half of 2021. To date, the company has reported having booked roughly 50% of its tower capacity for the second half of 2021. The company has also received orders for almost 15% of its 2022 production.

This strategy is designed to capitalize on the opportunities afforded by favorable policy trends within the domestic wind energy market.
