US renewables developer Geronimo Energy announced today that two solar projects in Michigan with a combined capacity of 40 MW have entered the construction phase.
Local engineering, construction and procurement (EPC) contractor J Ranck Electric Inc (JRE) is building the Bingham Solar and Temperance Solar plants in Clinton and Monroe counties, respectively. The two assets make up the MiSolar portfolio which will sell power to Consumers Energy under previously-signed power purchase agreements (PPAs).
Geronimo, a subsidiary of electric and gas utility National Grid Plc (NYSE:NGG), expects the plants to become operational by the end of 2020.
The company previously developed the 100-MW Apple Blossom wind farm in Michigan and is currently working on more than 600 MW of renewable energy projects across the state, it said.
