Bad Axe, Michigan

                  This greenhouse is part of a grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to help increase U.S. agricultural output. The food from this greenhouse will be grown year round and will be served at local school cafeterias.

                  Next three photos: The DTE Wind Service Center in Bad Axe, Michigan. All 248 wind turbines owned by DTE are monitored 24/7 from this location. Wind direction, wind speed, blade rotation speed, power output, generator speed, etc. are all monitored and will automatically shut down a wind turbine if the numbers are outside certain limits.

                  A Wind Education Center will be coming to this location soon.

                  Photo below: Site of the collapsed wind turbine near Elkton (collapsed in February of 2016 - the only turbine in the country to have collapsed like this).
