The facility is to be composed of seven General Electric 1.79-MW wind turbines and sixty one GE 2.3-MW wind turbine units in a wind farm with a total nameplate of 152.83 MW.
Michigan Wind 3 will construct an approximately 4.9-mile 345-kV line from its substation to ITC’s Interconnection Station. The Point of Interconnection shall be at the point where the lead line from the generating facility lands on the 345-kV bus at ITC’s Stringer Substation, which is in the southeast part of Michigan’s Lower Peninsula, very near Lake Huron.
