This Former Coal Plant Is Being Transformed Into A Clean Energy Site

By Kristin Hunt

A coal-fired power plant in Litchfield, Mich. is about to start a second life as a clean energy facility. Construction began earlier this month on the new site, which is expected to house 15 tenants and create 75 new jobs.

This new project is the work of Michigan Hub LLC, a development company that aims to provide “energy with synergy.” Over the next couple years, it’ll convert the 44-acre site into a facility capable of generating 168 megawatts of power from clean, local sources.

The land was once home to the Endicott Generating Station, a coal plant that closed in 2016.
