Wind power is on the rise in Michigan as technology makes it more effective, efficient, and environmentally friendly than ever before.


Wind Powers Michigan

Energy from wind power has been an important part of Michigan’s energy mix for quite some time. It will become a more important part of Michigan’s “all-of-the-above” approach to energy as prices continue to fall and reliability continues to rise.

Ranked 15th in the country in wind energy potential, Michigan is well-positioned to reap the benefits of this clean energy resource well into the future if we make the right investments today.

A Windfall of Benefits for Michigan

  • New jobs and stronger economies for rural communities
  • More tax revenue for local schools, roads, services, and other needs
  • Reduced pollution across the state, protecting our environment
  • Increased property values for landowners
  • Lower costs, increased efficiency, and greater reliability as technology advances

Incorporating greater use of wind power into Michigan’s energy mix will help increase capacity, reliability, and affordability for all Michiganders, making our energy supply more flexible and sustainable for decades to come.
