Two CMS Plants Go On Line in Michigan

Commercial operation began at two CMS Energy gas-fired generating plants in Michigan, adding 199 MW of capacity to the state's power grid for use this summer. The units, owned by CMS Energy's independent power unit, CMS Generation Co., will help assure electric system reliability during peak demand periods.

CMS Generation completed construction of a four-unit, 136 MW combustion turbine station just west of Gaylord in Otsego County's Livingston Township and a single 63 MW combustion turbine station in Kalamazoo County's Comstock Township.

"These new generating units represent an immediate response to Michigan's growing need for in-state power generation during times of peak demand," said Rodney E. Boulanger, CMS Generation CEO. "They will be supplemented by the 160 MW first phase of the new electric generating plant we are also adding at the Ford Rouge site in Dearborn, which is scheduled to begin generating electricity this July.''
