Marty Lagina and the Pursuit of A Clean, Green Economy
Nearly 13 years ago, in a first floor conference room of the Park Place Hotel in Traverse City, Marty Lagina and Frank Mortel sat side by side across a large wooden table, glowering at me through narrowed eyes. Lagina (with wife Olivia above) was the founder and chief executive of Terra Energy, an independent that had grown to become the most active driller and one of the largest producers of natural gas in Michigan. On that day, early in the unfolding scandal, Lagina and Mortel were after one objective. Lagina said it was personal. He'd graduated from Michigan Tech in the late 1970s, and worked as a petroleum engineer for Amoco before founding Terra Energy in 1981. He'd earned a law degree at the University of Michigan in 1982. He was a Michigander, proud of his success and his industry's value to the American way. I politely thanked him for the feedback, and asked for assistance and collaboration in improving the industry's environmental practices. He declined. A few months later, Lagina sold Terra Energy to CMS Energy for $62.6 million. He became an entrepreneur, opened a successful brewery restaurant on Front Street in Traverse City, got involved in a winery, took a long sabbatical in England, contributed to various civic projects. Every now and then his name was mentioned in one gathering or another I attended. Last month, Lagina and I connected again over energy. This time it was much more comfortable. Reason: We're working in the same field. He's founder and chief executive of a renewable energy company called Heritage Sustainable Energy, which is building a $300 million, 12,000-acre wind farm in northern Michigan. Though our conversation started with some old complaints about my ability as a journalist, we gradually moved to the issue at hand: The promise of replacing carbon-based polluting fuels. Lagina said he was committed to the enterprise as a businessman, investor, and as a citizen of northern Michigan. He's also got an interest in an electric vehicle company in Traverse City. "I've always viewed myself as being in the energy industry," he told me. "At this point, with all that's going on, wind makes a lot more sense." Lagina is among the increasing number of people I know in northern Michigan pursuing much different lives than those they led prior to arriving here. And Marty Lagina, a petroleum engineer who earned his first fortune in the carbon-based energy industry in northern Michigan, and is trying to earn his second in the clean energy sector. 2 comments on " Marty Lagina and the Pursuit of A Clean, Green Economy"


Superintendent Kenneth Groh said Heritage CEO Martin Lagina decided to financially support the school in order to counteract funding problems caused by its declining enrollment numbers.
"That's what prompted (Lagina) to make that donation," Groh said.

Along with his company's wind farm on the Garden Peninsula, Lagina is an Iron Mountain native, a graduate of Michigan Technological University, and an owner of recreational property on the Garden Peninsula. Along with Groh and Lagina, representatives from the Big Bay de Noc Board of Education, representatives from the school's student government, and Principal Diana Thill were all present at the program.
