Muskegon weighs Big Lake's wind energy future

MUSKEGON -- This city's economic future might be blowing in the wind. Literally. And it could mean hundreds of new jobs and the development of clean and plentiful energy.

Local leaders want Muskegon to become the center of a Great Lakes industry that would produce wind energy and the turbines and parts necessary to make it happen. Such a vision would involve placing dozens -- possibly hundreds -- of 325-foot wind turbines, or windmills, on floating anchor points 22 miles off the Lake Michigan shoreline.


Start the year off right. Easy ways to stay in shape in the new year.
