Consumers Energy has announced that its 100 MW Lake Winds Energy Park has begun commercial operation in Mason County, Mich.

Lake Winds represents the utility's first wind park, and Consumers Energy says the project helps put the utility on track to meeting Michigan's 10% by 2015 renewable portfolio standard.

"Completion of this project puts Consumers Energy on its way to meeting the 2015 requirement,” says David Ronk, Consumers Energy's director for transactions and resource planning. “The addition of Lake Winds to the company's portfolio of renewable sources increases its renewable supply to 7 percent of retail sales. The completion of other projects under development will increase our renewable supply to 8 percent by the end of 2012.”
