Consumers Energy announced that Cross Winds Energy Park II in Tuscola County’s Columbia Township began serving customers and contributing 44 megawatts of renewable energy in Michigan.
These wind turbines work by turning the kinetic energy from the wind into mechanical energy through a propeller, and into electrical power thanks to an alternator.
In general, the abundance of the airborne wind energy resources increases with altitude.
The wind farm will integrate GE’s Digital Wind Farm technology, which makes renewable energy outputs even more reliable.
Vattenfall has increased its ownership in Wieringermeer wind farm with the acquisition of an additional 32 turbines in what will be the largest windfarm on the Dutch mainland.
Wind turbines should be environmentally friendly, highly efficient, cost-effective, and able to function reliably for at least 20 years.
