On a statewide tour to drum up support for her plan to speed Michigan's economic turnaround, Governor Granholm met with Calving College students working to build a wind turbine and satisfy campus energy needs. Then the governor promoted the visit to Grand Rapids on her weekly podcast.
"I've been traveling across Michigan to look at some of the ways we are investing in our people and innovating to diversify our economy and create new jobs," the governor said. "Just this week, I met with students at Calvin College in Grand Rapids. They are building a wind turbine that will power lights and computers on campus."
"Harnessing the power of the wind can help us create jobs and become the alternative energy center of the country, while harnessing the power and talent of our people will help us create a workforce that attracts companies from across the globe," the governor added.
