    Seems to be increasing under Granholm.  Already michigan is home to industry like United Solar Ovonic.  Thin film, amorphous photovoltaics manufactured at a massive scale is precisely what is needed, and crystalline silicon is not the way to go for cost or efficiency.

    Further, I have seen few states that are as progressive in promoting LEED construction, with architects and builders, at least in West Michigan, working at efficient design and construction.

    I am hoping to move back to Michigan to take advantage of some of the innovation, and, yes, perhaps either getting off the grid or selling excess power back to it.
