Holland Sentinel April 8, 2011: “State bill would ban offshore wind farms”
By JIM HAYDEN
Holland, MI —
Wind turbines could be popping up on land along the lakeshore, but don’t expect to see them offshore if a bill now in a state House committee is approved.
The bill’s sponsor, state Rep. Ray Franz, a Republican from Manistee County, said the intent is to keep potential hazards out of the Great Lakes.
