Re: E-M:/ Twirling blades add power to the push for renewable energy



Although it is true that MIchigan ranks 14th, when one compares the windiest state to Michigan in absolute wind power availability, it doesn't look as promising.
 
Get it where you can find it for sure.

Across the state, proponents of wind energy hope Michigan's first commercial wind project, which brought its first power online earlier this month, will prove that wind power has a future in the state.

Thanks to Lakes Michigan, Huron and Superior, Michigan ranks high -- 14th -- among the states for winds. Michigan has enough wind to create 15,000 megawatts of power -- 267 times what it has now, said Tom Stanton, renewable energy program coordinator for the Michigan Public Service Commission.
