The Big Turtle Wind Farm is a 20-MW wind energy generation facility located Rubicon Township, eastern Huron County, Michigan. The project will be owned by Big Turtle Wind Farm, LLC and managed by Heritage Sustainable Energy, LLC. The wind farm is currently under construction and will consist of 10 Gamesa G114 turbines on 93 m towers. Construction activities commenced in October 2013 and will continue through the end of 2014, when the wind farm is anticipated to be in operation.
The Big Turtle Project is truly “Pure Michigan”. Through our relationships with manufacturers and utility companies we are able to facilitate the integration of our turbine suppliers with Michigan-based manufacturers of wind turbine components (Energetx, Ventower, Astraeus, Dowding and others). These companies are seeing substantial growth opportunities, translating to Michigan jobs.
