Dow Purchases Wind Power From Michigan Utility


Midland, Mich.-based Dow Corning Corp. will purchase more than 14,000 MWh of wind-generated energy through Consumers Energy's green generation program, making Dow Corning one of the largest private purchasers of renewable energy in the state of Michigan.

‘These kinds of steps benefit our nation and our state in several ways: producing alternative energy jobs in Michigan, providing a reliable source of clean energy and demonstrating the potential of partnerships to address serious energy issues,’ says Marie Eckstein, vice president and chief administrative officer of Dow Corning.

The amount of energy purchased through this agreement is equivalent to almost all of the electrical load required at Dow Corning's corporate headquarters in Midland, Mich. – a site with more than 1,100 employees and home to the company's global research and development center.
