The bipartisan Powering Michigan Forward package would grow the renewable energy market by removing barriers to solar energy generation. It repeals parts of the 2016 energy law that did damage on the solar industry when it implemented a 1% cap on distributed generation that has scared off potential solar customers who do not know how much they woul save under the cap. That cap will soon be reached for rooftop solar generation and has already been reached in some parts of the state. In addition to removing caps on small solar, wind, and other renewable projects, the package of bills would also increase prices paid to residential users and businesses while allowing net metering programs. The bills are supported by both clean energy groups and the business community.Learn more at legislature.mi.gov
