OWOSSO, Mich. – The Shiawassee Economic Development Partnership is hosting an informational forum Wednesday to discuss wind power in Michigan.
A Virginia power company wants to install 60 turbines in four Michigan townships within Shiawassee and Lenawee Counties.
Tonight’s forum is meant to inform residents about wind turbines and hear their concerns.
It will take place from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the D’Mar Banquet Center in Owosso.
Much of Michigan is well-suited for wind turbines, which produce power without the pollution of fossil fuels, however, opponents call them an eyesore that lowers property values and generates noise and lights.
