Proposed Wind Turbines In Michigan County Taller Than 'Mighty Mac'

The main towers of the Mackinac Bridge are 552 feet tall.

That makes the bridge 48 feet shorter than wind turbines being proposed for Shiawassee County. A Virginia company called Apex Clean Energy wants to erect as many as 60 of the 600-foot-tall wind turbines there. Huron County is already the site of 473 turbines, and plans call for 550 by the end of this year, with many of them 477 feet tall.
