L’ANSE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — A company says it’s not moving forward on plans for a wind farm in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula because of considerations including delays in the planning process.
Renewable Energy Systems recently announced that it has decided to stop developing the Summit Lake Wind Farm project in Baraga County’s L’Anse Township. A release from the company says the project, which was proposed last year, no longer made sense financially.
The company had proposed a wind-energy farm with 49 turbines, each standing almost 500 feet tall.
Plans for the wind farm were faced with opposition from some, including the group Friends of the Huron Mountains, which welcomed the latest news on the project’s cancellation.
