(Originally aired May 2008) Michigan is at a crossroads. With a shifting economy, coupled with the loss of hundreds of thousands of auto manufacturing jobs, Michigan’s prospects for the future have changed.
Many business, political and educational leaders are looking at alternative energy as a possible path to help diversify our economy and lead us to our new future.
On Sunday, May 25 from 11-11:30 p.m., CBS 62 proudly presented “Powering Michigan’s Future,” a look at how Michigan is gearing up for alternative energy opportunities.
