Huron County wind project to begin generating power

(BROOKFIELD TOWNSHIP) -- A new wind farm in Huron County is expected to start making power next month. NextEra Energy's Pheasant Run Wind Project is being built in Brookfield, Fairhaven, Grant, Oliver, Sebewaing and Winsor Townships. About half of the project's 88 turbines are to start spinning November 27 ahead of the December 5 start of commercial production. That's the project's first phase. The second phase is expected to begin commercial operation on February 15. When it's fully operational, it's expected to be Huron County's largest wind farm. With construction wrapping up, NextEra says trucks hauling massive turbine blades in the area will soon be seen less often.
