E-M:/ Wisconsin beating Michigan, Muskegon to clean energy punch

Many community leaders have said Muskegon, with its vaunted history in skilled manufacturing, could be a natural for developing alternative energy. Add to that Muskegon's location on the Lake Michigan shoreline with its steady source of strong westerly winds and the Port City looks well-heeled to move toward "green" energy.

Except that it appears Wisconsin has beaten Michigan and Muskegon to the punch when it comes to wind energy development. And Muskegon -- along with other West Michigan lakeshore communities -- doesn't have a seat at the table in Michigan as the issue begins to be explored in this state.
