Michigan is on the cusp of a clean energy revolution as climate pollution has gone down by 12% since 2012 and the state’s clean energy economy grew 5.3% to over 92,000 jobs between 2015 and 2016.
And while Michigan’s two biggest utilities, Consumers Energy and Detroit Edison (DTE), have been steadily retiring coal plants and ramping up energy efficiency and clean energy resources, those gains are threatened as DTE seeks approval to build a new 1,100-megwatt gas plant in St. Clair County.
Your mayor is critical to ensuring that this plant isn’t built and that cities — and utilities — prioritize expanding clean energy and cost-effective energy efficiency programs — not replacing carbon with more fossil fuels.
Tell your mayor to speak up for climate action and clean energy in Michigan immediately.
