Michigan LCV celebrates utility compromise boosting Michigan to 50 percent clean energy by 2030
LANSING – The Michigan League of Conservation Voters (MLCV) today celebrated a compromise reached between clean energy advocates and Michigan utility companies that requires 50 percent of the energy generated by utilities to come from a combination of clean energy and energy efficiency measures by 2030.
“This robust commitment to clean energy and energy efficiency will ensure lower costs for Michigan ratepayers while safeguarding the health of our air, land and Great Lakes,” said Lisa Wozniak, Executive Director at Michigan LCV. “Increasing Michigan’s use of clean energy will reduce dangerous pollution in our air and water and give families and businesses access to reliable and affordable electricity in the years to come.”
“Michigan LCV will work to make sure the utility companies follow through on this bold commitment. We also remain committed to holding Attorney General Bill Schuette, as well as our future Attorney General accountable for protecting Michigan ratepayers and ensuring the Public Service Commission does its job.”
