Grand Haven Power Plan
The greater Grand Haven area is transitioning away from being a single-source, coal-burning community into a technology-focused community with advanced distribution technologies and a diverse, sustainable portfolio of power resources. With a robust mix of renewable sources, partnership with other like-minded utilities and investment into locally owned generation, GHBLP is committed to delivering reliable, affordable and sustainable power for years to come.
