Vestas has announced that it will provide 56 of its V100-1.8 MW wind turbines to Consumers Energy for the utility's Lake Winds Energy Park in Mason County, Mich.
Delivery of the 101 MW order is scheduled for the first half of 2012, and commissioning is expected in the second half of 2012. According to the companies, the Lake Winds Energy Park will provide enough electricity to power 30,000 Michigan homes.
This is the second commercial-scale wind power plant in Michigan to use Vestas turbines. The first, Harvest Wind, was built in 2007 and includes 32 V82-1.65 MW turbines.
