Duke wind project cancelled

Duke Energy says it will discontinue plans for a wind farm in Benzie and Manistee counties. In a released statement the company says it does not have a buyer for the electricity and questions whether there is enough demand for renewable energy in Michigan right now. Duke had proposed building more than 100 turbines between Arcadia and Frankfort.

Opponents of the project claimed it would destroy the rural character of the area. In November, they recalled three trustees in one of the townships in the proposed wind farm.

Duke says it has five wind farms under development in other states. It will close its office in Benzie County at the end of March.

In Mason County Consumers Energy is building more than 50 turbines near Ludington.
