    WERZ board

    The board was established in December 2008 pursuant to Public Act 295 of 2008 (PA 295), also known as the "Clean, Renewable and Efficient Energy Act." The 11-member board includes representatives from cities and villages, townships, the state attorney general's office, the Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC), the renewable energy industry, the electric utility industry, independent transmission companies, environmental organizations, alternative energy suppliers, and the public at large. The board is required to issue a report that, among other things, includes a list of regions in the state with the "highest level of wind energy harvest potential."

    The board issued its proposed report detailing its findings on June 2, 2009.

    In August 2009, the board held public hearings in Bad Axe and Scottville.

    The board issued its final report on October 15, 2009. Transmission companies and electric utilities will identify transmission needs to serve the board's identified wind regions by November 30, 2009. The board dissolves on January 13, 2010.
