Governor Sets “No Regrets” Energy Goals for 2025

Posted on December 19, 2013 by Dene Westbrook

This morning Governor Snyder discussed his plan for a “no regrets” energy future by 2025.  He enumerated several goals for the state’s energy policy focusing on the areas of adaptability (eliminating energy waste), reliability (reducing outages and their length), affordability of rates and protection of the environment. The press release is available here: NR energy plan.

This announcement came after the Governor’s special message on energy and environment that he gave last year.  Additionally this year the Michigan Public Service Commission issued four energy reports specifically focusing on energy efficiency, renewable energy, electric choice and additional areas (i.e., reliability, higher rates and natural gas storage expansion). A summary of the MPSC reports is available here: summary of energy reports

We expect the discussion around these energy issues to heat up in 2014 and 2015.
