B.C. Cobb Power Plant today
Consumers Energy is in the process of divesting the 115-acre Cobb site to Forsite Development of North Carolina. The developer plans to demolish the power plant, and replace it with a deep-water marine terminal operated by Verplank Dock Co. for cross-Lake Michigan shipping — likely to the port of Milwaukee. The state of Michigan must approve the sale; it could be fall before it takes action.
