It’s been called one of the world’s biggest electric batteries. The Ludington Pumped Storage Plant can provide energy at a moment’s notice. This and its sustainable fuel source make Ludington an important part of our generating fleet. That means fewer inconveniences and more savings for you.
Ludington’s elegantly simple technology enables the plant to respond quickly to the daily, weekly and seasonal highs and lows of Michigan’s energy demand. The plant also helps keep rates lower because we can avoid the expensive spot market when electricity demand is high. The immense size of Ludington and its six-unit design offers flexibility in balancing electricity demand with electric output at the flip of a switch.
