There is much debate as to what characterizes a true Michigander.  Is it experiencing all four seasons in one day? Or perhaps sizing your children’s Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit? From blistering summers to frigid winters and lots of wind year-round, there is no debate that Michiganders are prepared for weather extremes. At Consumers Energy, we’ve decided to harness our state’s ever changing climate to propel us toward a sustainable energy future.

Cross Winds® Energy Park, one of two Consumers Energy wind farms in operation, provides clean energy to power more than 300,000 homes per year and a $6.3 million economic impact each year of operation. That means a greener future while providing more jobs for our Michigan residents. Watch our short video to learn more about Cross Winds® Energy Park:

  • Wind energy was utilized as early as 5,000 B.C. to propel boats along the Nile River.
  • The United States is second in the world for total wind power capacity.
  • The first windmill manufactured in the United States was designed by Daniel Halladay in 1854.
