Currently, the two main areas of commercial wind power are the Michigan Wind One and the Harvest Wind Farm. The Michigan Wind One is located around Ubly and the Harvest Wind Farm is located around Elkton and Pigeon. Both are owned by John Deere Energy.
Huron County is the best place in Michigan to collect wind power because it has the highest on-land wind speeds. The power is dropped into the electrical supply grid, and used where ever the demand is greatest. Better wind produces better power.
