UNIONVILLE, Mich. (AP) - A ribbon-cutting is planned for Friday for a wind power project in Michigan that will expand Consumers Energy’s renewable energy options.

The utility says the event to celebrate the Cross Winds Energy Park project is planned for the American Legion Hall in Unionville.

The unit of Jackson-based CMS Energy Corp. broke ground last year on the project in Tuscola County’s Akron and Columbia townships, about 90 miles northwest of Detroit.

The Cross Winds Energy Park will be a 105-megawatt wind farm with 62 wind turbines. The turbines will have enough capacity to supply electricity to about 31,000 homes.
