Consumers Energy has entered into an agreement to sell the electricity produced by the Apple Blossom Wind Farm, located in Huron County, Mich.
As part of the agreement, Consumers will have a future option to purchase Apple Blossom, which is currently under construction.
Consumers Energy is Michigan's largest utility and currently purchases power from seven (and owns and operates two) Michigan wind farms. Upon operation at Apple Blossom, Consumers will exceed Michigan's renewable energy portfolio mandate for utilities, as Consumers has already reached its target of acquiring 10% of its electricity from renewable sources.
‘We are pleased to enter into this agreement with Consumers Energy, a leading Michigan utility,’ says Blake Nixon, Geronimo Energy's president. ‘The project has taken an important step toward providing Consumers' electric customers and the local community with positive economic impact.’
