Description (excerpt):

U.S. Department of Energy Wind Vision report shows potential benefits for Michigan with continued expansion of wind power in the state.

A definitive new report recently released by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) shows huge potential for wind power in Michigan and throughout the United States. The DOE’s “Wind Vision: A New Era for Wind Power in the United States” finds wind energy could grow from supplying over 3.66% of the electricity generated in Michigan today to 4.8% by 2020 and more than 6.8% by 2030 – producing electricity for the equivalent of 710,000 average American homes.
