Abstract

This report presents the opinions of Michigan local government leaders on issues related to wind energy. It looks at the prevalence of wind turbines in jurisdictions across the state, opinions about the benefits and drawbacks of wind energy, sources of support and opposition to local wind energy, and issues regarding local regulation of wind turbines. The findings in this report are based on a statewide survey of local government leaders in the Fall 2013 wave of the Michigan Public Policy Survey (MPPS).

Keywords: Michigan, local government, renewable energy, wind power, environment
