Windmill Farms on I-65 route reminds us of a promise of renewable source of energy and reuse of brownfield land. By 2050 the world cities will have limited source of energy and water resources. Most of the architecture and constructions will be focused on rennovate, reuse and revive due to slow economy and massive climate changes. Cities like Detroit and Flint have the greatest opportunity to transform into a model of sustainable energy and green cities with low investment and community initiatives. Goverment policies and incentives to harness wind power and abundant water resources can make the Great Lakes region (Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana), a world center for sustainable practices and renewable energy sources.
