Consumers Energy has announced Gratiot Farms Wind Project is operational and contributing 150MW of renewable energy to customers in Michigan. Gratiot Farms Wind Project features 60 turbines with a total capacity of 150MW.
Consumers Energy acquired the project from Enel Green Power America, which started the development of the wind farm. Consumers Energy took ownership and responsibility for completing construction of the project in September 2019. Approximately 250 workers were employed during the construction of Gratiot Farms. A team of 10 full-time employees will operate the electric generation facility from a newly established service center in Middleton, Michigan, scheduled to be completed by late February. Gratiot Farms represents a US$ 260 million investment in Michigan’s clean energy infrastructure.
