The Big Turtle Wind Farm will be 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 (BT) and managed by Heritage Sustainable Energy, LLC. The wind farm will consist of 10 Gamesa G114 turbines on 93 m towers and will cover an area of approximately 2.5 square miles. 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”. We make extra efforts to contribute value and economic sustainability to the communities in which we work and establish our wind parks. In addition, we continue to cultivate relationships and facilitate the integration of our turbine suppliers with Michigan-based manufacturers of wind turbine components (Energetx, Ventower, Astraeus, Dowding and others). When this project is developed, these companies will see substantial growth opportunities translating to Michigan jobs.
