Muskegon County, Michigan hopes that favorable winds will be blowing across the County’s property — all 11,000 contiguous acres of it.
mlive.com reports that Muskegon County will solicit developers by the end of this calendar year to place a project of up to 150 MW in size on property currently managed by the County’s Wastewater Management System. Fourteen developers have already shown interest in the opportunity.
Muskegon County is pursuing a strategy much like the one that’s regularly advocated by Energy-Farmer.org: Go out and find a developer — don’t be satisfied with the first developer that finds you.
