Manitowoc mayor named to panel to study lake wind energy

From an article in the Manitowoc Hearld Tribune Reporter:

MANITOWOC - Mayor Kevin Crawford has agreed to serve as co-chairman of the Wind in the Great Lakes Work Group formed by the Wisconsin Public Service Commission.

The group will review the viability of wind power development on the Great Lakes. The commission is working with the Department of Natural Resources and the Board of Commissioners of Public Lands.

The work group includes representatives who have an interest or stake in the development of wind power.

"The future of our city, our state and nation is to be found in renewable resources and alternative fuels," Crawford said in a news release. "The Great Lakes are not only the largest fresh water resource in the world, but they may also be the solution to much of our nation's energy problems as they are a fantastic wind resource, as well."
