Holland BPW buys wind energy

HOLLAND, Mich. (WZZM) – Holland’s Board of Public Works is getting a jump start on green technology, just weeks before voters make a decision about Proposal 3.

The measure on the November 6 ballot calls for new requirements for alternative energy in the state’s constitution.

Last week, Holland approved a deal to start buying energy from two wind farms next year — one in Elmwood, Indiana, and the other in Ithaca, in Michigan’s Gratiot County.

Monica Hallacy looks at many policy decisions through the eyes of her infant son, especially when it comes to replacing coal with wind energy.

“When he grows up, I don’t want to be relying on fossil fuels and dirty coal pollution,” says Hallacy.
