MARQUETTE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Complaints are rising in an Upper Peninsula community about noise and vibrations from a new power station.

The Marquette Township Board got an earful at a meeting last week, just days after Marquette Energy Center was turned on as the primary source for power. It’s been generating electricity since last summer for the Marquette Board of Light and Power.

The Mining Journal reports that township officials are sympathetic. But they say they can’t do much except relay any concerns to the utility.

Resident Pete Thorrington says he can’t live in his house. He says all he hears is “thumping” and “whining.”

The utility is aware of the problem. Executive director Tom Carpenter says the European maker of the three engines is working on a solution.
