Former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm is visiting Ohio to talk about the economic benefits of investing in clean energy.
Granholm was a two-term governor of Michigan. She now serves as senior policy adviser to the Pew Clean Energy Program. She is scheduled to be the keynote speaker Wednesday at the University Clean Energy Alliance of Ohio's annual conference in Columbus.
Ohio is the latest stop on Granholm's nationwide tour to promote clean energy. She told an earlier audience in Little Rock, Ark., that promoting alternative energy technologies such as wind, solar and biomass can spark innovation and make America more globally competitive.
The Democrat also plans to meet with Ohio business leaders and visit sites where clean vehicle technology, industrial energy efficiency, and other clean energy projects are under way.
