Why Generating Energy Locally Matters for Michigan

Having the ability to supply our own energy gives Michigan greater control over our own energy future. 

For one thing, it’s just not smart to become overly reliant on other states’ energy leftovers.  An energy-independent Michigan is one that is able to meet its own energy needs. There’s only so much power we can import from other states, so we risk finding ourselves without the power we need to supply all Michigan homes and businesses, especially during peak use times.

Why can we only import so much power from other states?

Improving our energy infrastructure will help ensure reliability for all Michigan energy consumers, now and for years to come—and being able to generate our own power is the only solution that really gives Michigan control of its own energy future.

We need a Michigan-first energy policy in place as soon as possible to encourage investment in local energy generation and a secure Michigan energy future.
