American Wind Energy Association
Wind power in Michigan has become a big business. The state is about to join the elite “Gigawatt Club,” being one of only a handful of states to generate more than a billion watts of electricity from wind power. More than 40 companies in the wind industry now employ more than 3,000 Michiganders.
At Monday’s American Wind Energy Association conference in Chicago, leaders of the newly-formed Michigan Energy and Technology Center (METC) announced their multi-faceted plan to generate economic activity in the Great Lakes State.
