Wind energy is a renewable, clean, and low-carbon source of electricity. Wind energy does not require extraction of fuel, requires very small quantities of water, emits no air or water pollution, and does not produce harmful or dangerous waste products.
Wind power results in public health savings by offsetting pollutants that create smog and trigger asthma attacks and other lung diseases.
*According to EIA 2016 data, the average monthly residential amount of electricity consumed in Michigan is 668 kWh.
