Exelon Corp. has announced that construction has been completed on its 50-turbine, 90 MW Michigan Wind 2 project, located in Minden City, Mich., and the wind farm has entered commercial operation.
The project is located southeast of the already operational 46-turbine Michigan Wind 1 project in northern Sanilac and Huron counties. Exelon Wind also operates the Harvest I Wind project in Elkton, Mich. In early 2012, Exelon Wind will begin construction on Harvest II Wind, a 59.4 MW project in nearby Pigeon, Mich.
Exelon Wind is a division of Exelon Power, which owns and operates Exelon's renewable, hydroelectric and fossil power plants. Consumers Energy, based in Jackson, Mich., is purchasing the output from Michigan Wind 2 through a 20-year renewable energy purchase agreement.
