Natural gas is an affordable and clean option for generating electricity, saving you money and helping the environment. We have two natural gas combined cycle plants in our fleet, one in Zeeland and one in Jackson, with a total generating capability of 1117MW. The Zeeland facility also employs two natural gas simple cycle units providing an additional 360MW of generating capability. Together, The Zeeland and Jackson Generating Stations are capable of contributing over 1,470 megawatts of clean energy to the grid.
In June 2023, we also began operating the recently purchased Covert Generating Station, a 1,176-megawatt, natural gas-fueled generating facility in Van Buren County. The Covert plant, which began operating in 2004, is a key part of our Clean Energy Plan to deliver reliable, affordable energy to Michigan for years to come.
