DTE 50 MW wind farm in Michigan starts operations

DTE Energy has started commercial operations at its 50MW Pinnebog wind farm in Michigan.

The company said work started on the 30-turbine facility, which is in Huron County, in early 2016.

The wind farm is an expansion of the existing Echo wind park, DTE said.

It added that approximately 150 people were employed during construction, while DTE now has 30 full-time employees working at its Huron county renewable energy center in Bad Axe.
