NextGen Energy Plans to Build Two Ethanol Plants in Michigan.
NextGen Energy LLC today announced plans for two ethanol plants in Michigan, each producing 50 million gallons per year.
The plants will be located in Watervliet, Berrien County, in the southwest corner of the state, and in McBain, Missaukee County, in the central part of northern Lower Michigan. Preliminary site plan approval has been received for both plants and the process of obtaining permits has begun.
The plants are each expected to employ 40 people and create as many as 600 direct and indirect new jobs in the communities where they are located. The company, based in Southfield, Mich., projects the yearly local economic benefit for each plant to be $25 million.
"These plants are a win-win for Michigan and for the communities in which they will be built. They will help our economy, create new jobs, positively impact the environment, lower fuel costs and reduce our reliance on external sources for energy," said Todd A. Wyett, CEO of NextGen Energy.
