A coal-fired power plant in southern Michigan will be offline for six weeks as its generator core and turbine undergo a $5 million in maintenance and repair project.

The shutdown at the Michigan South Central Power Agency plant in Litchfield, MI, has been in the works and planned for a time where power demand typically is lower. The plant should be back online in mid-October.

The power agency’s General Manager Glen White said this is the first time since the early 1980s the generator ended up removed from the plant. Officials plan other plant maintenance during the outage.

Communities served by the plant including Coldwater, Hillsdale, Union City, Marshall and Clinton will get power from other power facilities during the shutdown.
