Wind Generation

Leading the Clean Energy Transformation

We’ve pioneered wind power in Michigan and now have turbines turning shore-to-shore across the Lower Peninsula. Our wind farms are a key piece of our Clean Energy Plan to protect the environment while supplying the power we need. Collectively, they generate clean, renewable energy for homes and businesses while supporting their local communities.

Wind Energy Sites and Projects


  • Beautiful and powerful - windfarms are reshaping Michigan’s energy future.
  • Once the nacelle is in place, the rotor is installed. The rotor typically contains three high-tech blades, a hub and a spinner. Blades range from 100 ft. to 180 ft. in length.
  • The nacelle is then lifted to the top of the tower. The nacelle is a part of the turbine connected to the rotor and contains the turbine brakes, speed shafts, gearbox and generator.
  • The rotor is connected to a shaft that spins, which creates energy. The turbines are connected to a power grid that captures the electricity and moves it where it needs to go.
  • Turbines are built in stages. First the tower (consisting of 3 or 4 parts) is erected on a concrete base.
