Michigan’s Upper Thumb Leads in Renewable Energy

The first wind turbine installed in the Upper Thumb was at Laker Elementary School near Pigeon Michigan in 2005.

The first industrial wind farms were Harvest Wind near Elkton and Michigan Wind 1 near Ubly. Both came online in 2008.

Michigan’s Upper Thumb currently has 472 operating turbines or 44% of total operating in the state.

Huron County has the largest installed wind energy base in the Great Lakes region.

The Upper Thumb region also hosts a high-capacity, 140-mile electric transmission line.  This project is called the Thumb Loop, capable of carrying electricity or up to 2,800 wind turbines.
