The goal of the project will be to expand the consensus on Great Lakes protection to include electricity generation.
The outreach and education plan will focus on how offshore wind energy might be able to 1) enhance the quality of the Great Lakes; and 2) enhance the quality of life of coastal communities.
For more information about the benefits, challenges and concerns about offshore wind energy development in Michigan's Great Lakes, please see our Project Documents and Handouts page.
On behalf of the project team, thank you for your interest in our project.
