RES Americas sells 114 MW of wind energy to Wolverine Power Cooperative

RES America Developments Inc. entered into a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with Wolverine Power Supply Cooperative Inc. for 114 MW of wind energy and associated renewable energy credits in the Thumb of Michigan.

The wind power will be sourced from the Deerfield Wind Energy project, which is located in Huron County, Michigan. The project, located on about 20,000 acres in the townships of Huron, Bloomfield, Dwight and Lincoln, will provide up to 200 jobs during the peak of construction and up to six permanent jobs once construction is completed.

Currently more than 215 local landowners are participating in Deerfield Wind Energy and will receive landowner royalty payments from the project.

RES Americas developed and will construct the project and Wolverine, which is owned by and supplies wholesale electric power to seven members, will be the recipient of the 114 MW of electricity generated by the project. Deerfield Wind Energy is scheduled to reach commercial operation by December 31, 2016.
