Michigan LCV applauds Consumers Energy for setting net zero carbon emissions goal
LANSING – The Michigan League of Conservation Voters issued the following statement in support of Consumer Energy’s goal to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2040.
“We applaud Consumers Energy for proactively addressing its carbon footprint and helping combat climate change by eliminating the use of coal and helping customers use energy more efficiently,” said Nick Occhipinti, government affairs director for the Michigan League of Conservation Voters. “Consumers Energy’s actions are a stark contrast to DTE Energy, which has continued to over rely on dirty, expensive fossil fuels that pollute our air, land and water. Michiganders are demanding cleaner, more affordable energy, and DTE should take a page out of Consumers’ book.”
