From a presentation about Wind on the Water by Deb Erwin, program and planning analyst, Public Service Commission of Wisconsin:

The Governor’s Task Force on Glocal Warming recommended:

The Public Service Commission of Wisconsin (PSC) and other state agencies complete a study of the feasibility of generating electricity from off-shore wind resources in the Great Lakes by the end of 2008.

[In response,] the PSC created an external Study Group to examine the feasibility of Great Lakes wind projects.

Task was not to determine whether offshore wind is in the best interests of the state, rather to determine whether or not off-shore wind in the Great Lakes is possible.

Meetings were open to the public and documents were shared.

Materials are available on the PSC website.
