#1 about 60 miles southeast of south shore of Lake Michigan

flat area near existing high capacity transmission lines so reducing site preparation and connectivity costs

area is great for growing corn and soybeans but we have had surplus in these for many years

#6 Skid's image shows why the 1.3GW capacity is a misleading number. The average 24/365 capacity factor is likely to be about 20-25%. However, in the summer during peak a/c demand the capacity may be in the 70 to 85% range.
