BRECKENRIDGE, Mich. (AP) -- A company is moving forward with plans to build 125 wind turbines near Breckenridge in Gratiot County.

Invenergy Wind announced last week that the 30,000-acre wind farm is expected to be operating by late 2011 about 100 miles northwest of Detroit. It will have the capacity to power nearly 54,000 homes.

Invenergy says it will be the largest wind farm in the state. Invenergy Wind is affiliated with Chicago-based Invenergy LLC.

Detroit-based DTE Energy Co.'s Detroit Edison subsidiary plans to buy power from the wind farm.
