DTE Energy reports the first 13 GE wind turbines at its Echo Wind Park have been commissioned, with the entire facility set to begin commercial operation by the end of November.

The 70-turbine project, sited on nearly 16,000 acres in Huron County, Mich., will add another 112 MW to DTE Energy's renewable energy portfolio. The Echo project is the third wind park to be owned and operated by the company.

The 110 MW Thumb Wind Park reached commercial operation in December 2012. In addition, DTE Energy has an ownership stake in the 212.8 MW Gratiot County Wind Park. Sixty-four of the turbines are owned by DTE Energy, while 69 turbines are owned by Gratiot Wind LLC, an affiliate of Invenergy Wind LLC. DTE Energy buys the power from Invenergy's turbines under a 20-year power purchase agreement.
