Blue Water Energy Center Information Hub
Blue Water Energy Center, unanimously approved by the Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC), is expected to be the most fuel-efficient power plant in Michigan. It will run on natural gas and use combined-cycle technology that captures waste heat to produce additional electricity. The plant will be 70 percent cleaner and 40 percent more efficient than the three coal-fired plants it replaces. It is a critical component of a balanced energy mix that provides 24/7, always available power generation required when the wind turbines and solar arrays are unable to produce electricity due to weather conditions or time of day.
