  Wolverine has served members for 60 years. The present-day Wolverine resulted from the merger of Wolverine Electric Cooperative and Northern Michigan Electric Cooperative in January 1983.

Both Wolverine Electric Cooperative and Northern Michigan Electric Cooperative were chartered in 1948.
 
     
 
 
Wolverine provides wholesale service to meet the power requirements of our seven members, all serving customers at retail.

Generation

Power plants
Wolverine owns and operates six electric generating facilities primarily used for peaking capacity. These plants are capable of generating approximately 565 megawatts of electricity and are located in Belleville, Burnips, Gaylord, Hersey, Tower and Vestaburg.

In December 2010, we purchased a 150-megawatt interest in the Ohio Valley Electric Corporation for base load generation. We also have a 15-megawatt interest in Campbell 3, a coal-fired, base load facility primarily owned by Consumers Energy.

We are developing a base load power plant near Rogers City, Michigan. We have selected circulating fluidized bed (CFB) technology for the plant and are proposing to build two units at 300 megawatts each.

Wind energy
Wolverine is purchasing energy from the Harvest Wind Farm under a long-term agreement. The Harvest Wind Farm, the state’s first commercial-scale wind projectgenerates electricity to serve 15,000 Michigan homes when operating at full capacity.

Transmission

Wolverine owns and operates an extensive electric transmission network in the western and northern portions of Michigan’s Lower Peninsula. Wolverine has nearly 1,200 miles of 69 kV and 138 kV looped transmission lines and associated facilities. Wolverine and other companies use these transmission facilities to integrate power supply resources with customer loads.

Beginning January 1, 2006, the commencement date of the Michigan Joint Zone, Wolverine transferred operational control of its transmission facilities to the Midwest Independent Transmission System Operator.

Wolverine also owns and operates approximately 390 miles of radial transmission facilities that provide transmission service to distribution substations connected to our network. These facilities serve as the interface between Wolverine and our transmission members.
