An environmental group has been pushing lawmakers to promote more wind energy even though Governor Snyder says its too early to say whether the state should require greater development of renewable sources.
We talked with one man who has tried wind energy and says its not the way to go.
Wind energy, the simple harnessing of mother nature.
It's something environmentalists say is good for all of us.
Virginia Shannon, Environment Michigan: "One of the greatest things we see is that with wind energy right now in Michigan we're avoiding the pollution of the equivalent of 48 thousand cars in Michigan."
Bruce Lewis likes that idea.
Lewis: "For years I've always been interested in wind power."
That's why he installed a 12-hundred dollar wind turbine on his home in Howell.
Lewis: "I had targeted, perhaps I could save on my electric bill 30 dollars a month."
But there's a problem.
The turbine rarely spins.
Lewis: "No way will I ever reach that."
Lewis say the winds just aren't strong enough.
In fact, he says the only time he saw any real savings was in the after effects of hurricane Sandy.
Lewis: "It reduced my electric bill for the 30 days by 15 dollars."
But environmentalists believe even small savings are worth it.
Shannon: "That means that we have less air pollution like we see from coal fired power plants and natural gas."
But Lewis says he thinks his days of wind energy are over.
Lewis: "Probably come spring I'll take it down."
He says he may try to sell it to someone who lives in a more blustery area.
