DTE to buy 44 wind turbines in thumb area

BAD AXE — DTE Energy will be acquiring 50 percent — 44 turbines — of NextEra’s Pheasant Run Wind Project in the next month, according to DTE officials.

Once acquired, DTE’s portion of Pheasant Run will be named Brookfield Wind Farm. The turbines are in Brookfield, Winsor, Sebewaing and Grant townships.

The energy from Pheasant Run Wind Project was sold to DTE Energy to help the company meet its clean energy goals. By 2015, all utilities must reach a 10 percent renewable energy goal required by Michigan’s Renewable Energy Standard.

The 44 turbines are expected to produce 75 megawatts of power.
