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
