Wisconsin, United States [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] WindConnect has completed construction of the Harvest Wind Farm, located on 3,200 acres in Huron County, Michigan. Harvest is the first utility-scale wind facility that will operate in the state of Michigan.
The Harvest Wind Farm consists of 32 Vestas V82 wind turbines, with a capacity to produce 53 megawatts (MW) of electricity. WindConnect managed construction of the turbine foundations, roadways, underground collection system and interconnection substation at the site. John Deere Wind Energy is the owner and developer of the Harvest Wind Farm. Wolverine Power Cooperative has signed an agreement to purchase the energy produced at the site.
“Huron County has consistently strong winds for this part of the U.S., making it a prime location for providing renewable energy,” said Mark Osten, WindConnect Director of Business Development. “This is a major step forward for Michigan’s renewable energy future, and WindConnect is proud to have built this important renewable energy resource for John Deere Wind Energy.”
