In December 2022, Wolverine Power Cooperative purchased the former Georgia Pacific property located next to the Gaylord Regional Airport and submitted plans to the regional transmission operator to interconnect a 150 MW solar array.
Wolverine is Michigan’s leader in new renewable energy—currently providing members with power that is 60 percent carbon-free. With a current renewable portfolio that includes more than 210 MW of wind and solar, Wolverine is pleased to continue growing that portfolio with the addition of the Gaylord Solar project.
Gaylord Solar is a utility-scale solar array to be constructed in Otsego County, Michigan. The facility, situated on roughly 1,000 acres of land, is expected to begin construction in spring of 2025 and will create an estimated 350 construction jobs for the area.
Once operational, Gaylord Solar will generate 150 MW of reliable, cost-competitive, and clean energy to Wolverine’s members, generating enough energy to supply more than 24,000 Michigan homes.
