Michigan has a proposal for the Nov. election that would require 25% of energy production to be from "renewables" (wind, solar)I have not looked into Michigan's proposal. Around 2/3 of states have some form of a renewable portfolio standard. Some people think renewable energy means clean energy. You can already see that on this thread. That is not necessarily true. Renewable energy sources may include wood waste, chicken manure, landfill gas and hog manure. Burning wood and animal manures can produce high levels of nitrogen oxides, particulate matter, sulfur dioxide and hydrogen chloride. There have been discussions to expand the definition of wood waste to include whole trees. Here in NC, 12.5% of electricity needs to come from renewable energy sources but only 0.2% needs to come from solar energy. My guess is much of it will come from wood waste.
