New Year’s resolutions are all about improving lives. And you can improve the life of all Michiganders with these five simple 2020 Michigan energy resolutions. Check them out—and help make 2020 our state’s best year ever for advancing reliable, affordable, sustainable energy.
These policies will unnecessarily shift costs from some energy consumers to others, allowing a select few to avoid paying their fair share. Those who are most likely to be burdened with additional energy costs include many Michiganders who can least afford it. ...
A group of Michigan lawmakers introduced legislation they are calling the “Powering Michigan Forward” package to secure incentives for private solar in our state. Despite the misleading title, these bills would move Michigan backward, not forward, when it comes to renewable energy.
No single energy source is the answer, nor is a combination of energy sources the complete answer. I doubt that there is a real answer
They wish to make energy cheap or free for the poor and people down on their luck. This would be wonderful. This must mean energy is going to be more affordable as if they found an efficient,cheap, reliable way to provide energy across the board.In reading this article I have the impression that everyone's energy rates will skyrocket. How can this be good? What your saying is energy will become to expensive for low income households. It's already to high for people on welfare. This must mean more government dependencies. And the average Joe will be footing the bill for everything.With no long term payoff for the average Joe
The smart meters installed last year figure energy usage differently than the old spinning wheel style. Result, everyone's electric bill went up. Last year we foam insulated the house, got rid of our electric furnace and electric range and put in LP. Our winter electric bill hasn't gone past a hundred bucks a month so far. I expect to have that investment paid off in 5 to 7 year. Meanwhile, I just built a pole barn. It will be heated off of solar panels with LP for backup by heating hot water. I don't need or want any power company involved in my life anymore than need be. They are NOT our friend and never will be.
The problem with solar energy on a large scale basis - and with the entire Green New Deal philosophy - is that there is no way to pay for it. The government is being employed to benefit some citizens at the expense of others. Those with net metering pay little or no utility bills by “selling” useless power during non-peak daytime hours, but still demand grid access paid for by their neighbors during peak evening hours. That cannot be sustained, and it does very little to benefit the environment.
Solar on building is great ! But when you start covering land with solar panels or solar collectors panels, they eliminate food production, in favor of electricity production in daylight hours. While other sources of power must be used to fill in, after sunset. That often includes dinner, entertainment, 2nd and 3rd shift production and in colder climates heating needs. Si/Fi note: In the 23rd Century of Star Trec, movie: as a Whales' ship encircled the earth. The earth energy storage cells were expected to run dry in lest than 48 hrs. Even fiction writers understood the risk and folly of relying upon (green energy) solar and wind for power. Eyes Wide Open ?
This article is published by a front organization for the energy companies
I googled this organization. They have connections to DTE, a monopoly utility company, which, logically, would be against people becoming energy self sufficient and for cities to develop more local energy generation.
I am very skeptical about what you purport. You should state who you are. Are you pro fossil energy. You should be very clear of your agenda. Readers should be very aware of deceitful propaganda
You mean making people who've taken personal responsibility for green energy, pay for your poor decisions to commit to dirty energy.
One bright thing to all of this is the liberals will also get the short end of the stick along with us. Since they voted her and the other Democrat socialists into office. 😂😂
What a waste of taxpayers money. Reminds me of the $ 200.00 a car we pay. Billions of dollars and no accountability! Somebody is getting rich on the backs of the taxpayers!
Any time big business and government tell dependent consumers it will help them, DUCK👹
There is no Panacea of energy production. Each one has it's positives and negatives.
Let private companies foot the bill for their own energy projects and keep them local!
That's the point if you want to save money go Green not republican
I’m from the government and I’m here to help.
I’m voting for CHANGE. We gotta start SOMEWHERE. 🗳🌱
They favor renewable sources and the petrochemical industries hate it.
Practical solar doesn't exist, nothing but a money pit
so now you want us to pay for the loafers in Dearborn?
ISN'T it ALWAYS that way in MICHIGAN? THE POORER YOU ARE THE MORE YOU OVERPAY?
Just Michigan government fucking us again !
Vote socialists out of office. This is their agenda.
Did ya hear the one about the guy who was selling a car. An electric car. The government loves electric cars and told everyone I'll give you 7,500 if you buy one of these cars. The cars are not cheap. Incentives for the rich.
