Switch project pushes Consumers Energy to expand wind farm
When Switch was eyeing Michigan as a location for a massive data center, the Nevada tech firm was looking for an energy source that was reliable, sustainable and affordable.

The request for 100 percent renewable energy proved to be the most challenging for Consumers Energy.

"We didn't know how to exactly how to get there but we committed," said Garrick Rochow, Consumers senior vice president for distribution and customer operations.

On Monday, the state's largest utility announced it was asking the Michigan Service Commission to approve a green energy tariff to meet the needs of Switch and other companies.

The tariff is a package of rates and rules for specific customers. In this case, Switch and about two dozen other big customers eager to buy renewable energy from Consumers.

Switch would be the utility's first large business customer for renewable energy. The 1.8 million-square-foot data center campus in Gaines Township opened its first phase of operations in the iconic former Steelcase pyramid building in March.
