"We are pleased to work with Michigan residents to provide more power from renewable sources," said Tim Sparks, Consumers Energy's Vice President for Energy Supply Operations. "Since 2010, we have signed more than 200 contracts with owners of homes and businesses to help us generate electricity from this renewable source."
The projects are in the following counties: Calhoun, Clinton, Eaton (2), Genesee, Grand Traverse, Ingham, Jackson (3), Kent (4), Newaygo, Ottawa (2) and Shiawassee (2).
The company will accept additional applications from Oct. 1 through Nov. 5.
Consumers Energy is on target to use renewable sources, such as solar, wind , biomass, hydroelectric power and anaerobic digestion, for 10 percent of the electricity it supplies by the end of the year. The company's second wind farm, Cross Winds® Energy Park, will open this fall.
