Green Jobs Leading Michigan's Recovery April 14, 2011 : 11:31 AM

Investments in the green economy are paying off and producing jobs:

“Michigan's "green" economy is growing fast, data shows, with
thousands of clean energy jobs on the horizon as a new manufacturing
base is being built on the expertise of its battered auto industry.”

“The change raises the prospect that Michigan might one day be a
global hub for electric vehicles and advanced battery development,
along with biofuel technologies, wind power parts and solar panels.”

“Former Gov. Jennifer M. Granholm, whose second term ended in January,
said in an interview that Michigan businesses are expected to create
more than 150,000 clean energy jobs in the next decade from $14
billion of projects in the pipeline.”
