Since we have a lot of time to think, how about thinking about wind energy? Our average wind speed of 17.23 mph is 23rd in the nation, but the US Energy Information Administration says Michigan ranks in the bottom third of wind energy production – 36th to be precise. The Wind Energy Technologies Office reports Michigan’s installed capacity as 2,190 MW with 215 MW under construction.

  1. Love these sunrise colors. :)

    The only thing about these giants right now is none of them can be reused, or even scrapped. They go straight to the landfill when they reach their end of life date.

    1. True. The same could be said for any of the massive coal power plants and while there’s of course pollution in the manufacturing process, nothing like the environmental damage from coal plants. I have no doubt we will continue to get better at alternative energy!
