Wind farm including 88 wind turbines planned for part of Huron County

A wind power generation project with 88 wind turbines is planned for part of Huron County.

The Huron Daily Tribune of Bad Axe reports NextEra’s Pheasant Run Wind Project will be built in Brookfield, Fairhaven, Grant, Oliver, Sebewaing and Winsor townships.

Project Manager Ryan Pumford says construction officials and landowners met last week.

Pumford says crews hope to have an access road completed in six weeks and most of the large construction done by the end of the year. The wind turbines are being built in an area roughly 95 miles north of Detroit.

Project Manager Ryan Pumford said that construction officials and landowners were able to meet each other last week.
