Michigan electric cooperative signs PPA for 150-MW solar project

Clēnera and Wolverine Power Cooperative announced a 20-year PPA between Wolverine and Clēnera’s affiliate, Gemstone Solar. Gemstone Solar is scheduled to be commercially operational by the end of 2023, and will deliver 150 MWAC of clean energy to Wolverine members. Clēnera, a developer of large-scale solar and storage projects, and a subsidiary of Enlight Renewable Energy, will manage construction and operation of Gemstone Solar.

Wolverine’s current renewable portfolio includes more than 210 MW of wind and solar and the co-op is pleased to continue growing that portfolio with the addition of Gemstone Solar.

“Wolverine’s mission is to provide reliable and competitive power to its member-cooperatives,” said Eric Baker, president & CEO of Wolverine Power Cooperative. “We are proud to build on our 70-year history with significant additional commitments to responsible, sustainable and carbon-free projects like Gemstone Solar.”

Gemstone Solar will occupy approximately 1,000 acres of land in Cass County, Michigan. Construction is expected to begin in spring of 2023.
