Cross Winds Energy Park

We’re committed to being a good neighbor in Tuscola County. That’s why the Cross Winds Energy Park was designed in compliance with wind zoning ordinances created to protect the health, safety and welfare of nearby residents. Phase I of the project is a 111-megawatt wind energy facility that has brought new jobs and other economic benefits to the immediate area and beyond. Phase I has been operating since 2014.

Phase II construction of Cross Winds began in spring 2017 and has a target date for commercial operation in early 2018. This phase will add 19 wind turbines and 44 megawatts of production capability to the overall facility. Following completion of Phase II, a third phase will likely be constructed in 2019 to increase the production capability by another 76 megawatts by 2020.
