Utility Resumes Construction Of Wind Power Project

Posted: Updated:
CARO, Mich. (AP) - Consumers Energy is resuming construction on a wind power project in Michigan that will expand the company's renewable energy options.

The unit of Jackson-based CMS Energy Corp. broke ground last year on the project in Tuscola County's Akron and Columbia townships, about 90 miles northwest of Detroit. The renewed work announced Monday comes as warmer weather returns to Michigan.

Consumers Energy is urging motorists to be alert for construction traffic, since materials are coming from around the area, southeastern Michigan and other parts of the state.

The Cross Winds Energy Park will be a 105-megawatt wind farm with 62 turbines. It's expected to open in late 2014 and create about 150 construction jobs.
