Circle Power is a renewable energy company who plans to develop twelve wind turbines near Stanton and Adams townships in Houghton County. Chris Moore, the company’s Vice President, said there were many factors that brought them to the copper country.
The benefits that will be brought to to the community will be some employment opportunities, $15 million in tax revenue, and 2/3 of the energy produced will go to UPPCO to sell back to residents. But some in the community still have concerns. Chris went further into clarifying some of the common misconceptions surrounding wind energy.
Circle Power’s plans to develop wind energy in the copper country are still in it’s very early stages. Previously members of Circle Power worked on Mendota Hills in Illinois. Which has seen strong production since being completed. Circle Power hopes to bring a similar result to the Upper Peninsula.
