Exelon plans to break ground on its Michigan Wind 3 project in Sanilac County next spring. It expects to deliver electricity to the Cadillac-based G&T by December 2016 under a 20-year, 153-megawatts power purchase agreement.
“This project positions Wolverine favorably with significant renewable generation,” said Eric Baker, the G&T’s president and CEO. “When Michigan Wind 3 is complete, Wolverine expects to have more than 350 MW of wind generation in its portfolio, meaning Michigan cooperatives will achieve a 30 percent renewable level.”
In addition to the purchase agreement with Michigan Wind 3, the G&T has a purchase agreement for 150 MW of wind power from the Deerfield wind project. That joint venture between Algonquin Power and RES Americas is also expected to be online by December 2016.
“Wolverine has a consistent power supply strategy that includes long-term price stability, competitive rates and environmental stewardship. Adherence to those principles has led to Wolverine’s strong wind portfolio,” Baker said.
