Michigan House Passes Clean Energy Future Bills, Putting the State on the Path to 100% Clean Energy

If this legislation passes, it would make Michigan a national leader on clean, carbon-free and renewable energy/

According to NRDC, The legislation, which includes Senate Bills 271, 273 and 502, would make Michigan a national leader on clean, carbon-free, and renewable energy, provide Michiganders with more options for affordable utility bills, set up the state to capture billions in public and private funds, and drive more equitable job creation and benefits for consumers. Additional work will follow to ensure successful implementation of the package and an equitable clean energy transition for all. 

The following is a reaction from Derrell Slaughter, Michigan Clean Energy Advocate with NRDC (Natural Resources Defense Council): 

“With the passage of the Clean Energy Future package, we’ll require utilities to move to 100% clean energy by 2040 and put more resources toward energy efficiency, including more energy efficiency investment and health and safety resources specifically for low-income residents to make improvements to their homes. 

“Passing this legislation solidifies Michigan as a national clean energy leader and is a crucial first step toward cleaner air, cleaner water and more affordable electricity bills for Michiganders.”
