As the Detroit Free Press put it, “Good news blows into Michigan” today, with Gov. Jennifer Granholm (D) scheduled to announce that the Great Lake State has landed its first large wind turbine assembly plant.

Northern Power Systems, a turbine manufacturer based in Barre, Vt., will be using a factory in Saginaw, Mich., to build a next-generation large turbine. The company has already agreed to supply 13 of the 2.2-MW units for a wind farm to be built near Escanaba, Mich., the article said.
