Harvest Wind Farm in Michigan

Trintek Energy Consulting actively participated as a consultant from the early stages of the first utility scale wind energy project constructed in the State of Michigan. The Harvest Wind Farm, LLC was announced in June of 2007 and will produce enough energy to supply more than 15,000 homes.

John Deere renewable Energy originally developded the wind energy project with Trintek's client, Michigan Wind, LLC. The project is now owned by Exelon.

 

In addition to the public announcement for the Harvest Wind Farm to be constructed, Wolverine Power Cooperative in Cadillac, Michigan announced it has signed a long term agreement to buy wind generated power from the Harvest Wind Farm.

The Harvest Wind Farm is now featured on the Wolverine Power Cooperative web site.

See an aerial slide show of the Harvest Wind Farm, including photos showing the on-site assembly of wind turbine units.

Below is a virtual tour of the Harvest Wind Farm, also posted on YouTube.
