Michigan’s Consumers Energy Teams Up with Jupiter Power for 100 MW Battery Storage Facility

Consumers Energy, Michigan's leading energy provider, has announced a partnership with LLC to integrate 100 megawatts (MW) of dispatchable capacity into its grid infrastructure.

In a statement released on Monday, Consumers Energy revealed that the collaboration includes a long-term (PPA) aimed at facilitating the construction of a new battery storage facility. This initiative supports Consumers Energy's ambitious target of operating 550 MW of battery energy storage systems (BESS) across its network by 2040.

The utility, which serves as Michigan's largest energy provider, has committed to phasing out coal as an energy source by 2025 and aims to meet 90% of its customers' energy demands through clean energy sources. Consumers Energy also plans to develop 75 MW of its own energy storage capacity by 2027.
