Leelanau Community Energy, LLC (LCE) has completed a 120 kW wind project as part of the Northport Energy Action Taskforce (NEAT) non-profit community energy efforts. Fifteen local investors are supporting the project and suggesting it as a model for other community wind projects. The wind turbine is directly interconnected to the Northport – Leelanau Township waste water plant under the Consumers Energy net metering program, and is expected to generate over 50 percent of the plant’s electricity demand. Doug McInnis, President of NEAT and LCE, indicates that affiliated members have also installed 38.7 kW of solar electric systems in the township, primarily under the net metering provisions of 2008 PA 295. NEAT’s goals include achieving a 100 percent renewable energy heated and powered township in five years. NEAT members, led by Steve Smiley and Tom Gallery, have provided key oversight, coordination, and installation tasks for the project.
