Michigan’s largest wind farm is now operational.

Meridian Wind is now one of 20 wind farms in DTE Energy’s portfolio. The 225 MW farm in central Michigan has 77 wind turbines.

DTE managed all aspects of Meridian Wind’s development, from land acquisition and permitting through construction. The utility will assume responsibility for the project’s ongoing operations and maintenance.

Meridian Wind is DTE’s first self-developed renewable energy project since 2016.

Detroit-based DTE plans to add approximately 1,000 MW of new renewable energy each year starting in 2025, and as part of its Integrated Resource Plan filed last fall, the company proposed adding an additional 15,000 MW of clean energy by 2042.
