Keeping electricity affordable for our members is part of our mission at Wolverine.

There are five pillars that are vital to providing a solid power supply that remains economical.

Five Pillars of Power Supply

01 Diverse Supply Mix

02 Asset Ownership

03 Environmental Stewardship

04 Competitive Rates

05 Long-Term Price Stability



Wolverine’s diverse supply mix allows us to keep power affordable for our members.

No one single fuel source is sufficient to generate the electricity needed to supply our members. And with frequent price fluctuations, varying fuel availability, and continual regulatory and legislative changes, it is essential to have a supply mix that is as diverse as it is economical.

Wolverine is committed to securing long-term power supply for our members through a diverse mix of energy resources. From base load coal to peaking natural gas to renewable wind energy power purchase agreements (PPA) to power purchased from the market, Wolverine’s energy portfolio is diverse and reliable for years to come.



Wolverine owns and operates 7 natural gas power plants throughout Michigan.

These peaking power plants are designed to operate at times when demand for electricity is at its peak. They are capable of producing approximately 1,000 of the total 1,360 megawatts of generation.
