U.S. Rep. Candice Miller (Michigan-10th District) toured Exelon Wind's Michigan Wind 2 wind farm, which is currently under construction in Minden City in northeast Sanilac County, Mich.
Miller received an update on the construction progress and an overview of the economic impact to the Thumb Region. The wind project will consist of 50 turbines capable of producing 90 MW and is expected to be placed into service by the end of this year.
The site is one of Exelon Wind's three development projects in Michigan. The other two projects – Harvest Wind I in Elkton, and Michigan Wind 1 in Ulby – are currently in operation. Once the wind project in Minden City is completed, the three wind projects will produce a total of 211.8 MW.
