In recognition of the heavy dependence on fossil fuels and associated escalating costs and environmental impacts, the Washtenaw County Board of Commissioners passed a resolution in April 2006 directing the Department of Planning and Environment to test the wind resources in the County and examine the feasibility of providing wind generated electricity for county residents and businesses. To help ensure project success, Washtenaw County formed a working partnership with the City of Ann Arbor and the University of Michigan to form the current project team.
