About half of the purchased electricity at the University of Michigan’s Ann Arbor campus will come from renewable energy sources within the state, including three new wind-energy parks.
The parks – two in Isabella County and one in the Upper Peninsula – began operating in April and will reduce UM’s greenhouse gas emissions by more than 100,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide annually, which equals annual emissions generated by 12,000 homes, according to a university news release.
The Isabella County wind farms contain 136 turbines with a capacity of 383 megawatts, making them the state’s largest wind parks, according to the release. Fairbanks Wind, located in the UP’s Delta County, has 21 turbines with a capacity of 72 megawatts, the release states.
