April 22 (Renewables Now) - UK-based Renewable Energy Systems, also known as RES Group, announced on Friday it has abandoned plans for the construction of a 130-MW wind farm in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

The development of the so-called Summit Lake wind project was ceased due to continued delays that have made the scheme “financially and logistically viable.” Sean Stocker, RES project manager said, “After a careful review of several factors, RES has decided to discontinue the development of the Summit Lake Wind project.”

The UK-based firm intended to install 49 turbines in L’Anse Township, near the McCormick Wilderness area of the Ottawa National Forest. Each of those machines was proposed to be up to 498 ft (152m) high.
