Energy Policy and Michigan’s Energy Future

AMP supports energy policies that put Michigan first, and we encourage our lawmakers to choose Michigan when they make decisions that have long-term consequences.

Characteristics of Smart Energy Policy

  • Create and Sustain Michigan Jobs

Responsible regulation ensures that energy remains reliable and affordable for all Michiganders, leading to stronger local communities and new opportunities for Michiganders throughout our state.

  • Support Local Economies and Communities

When Michigan produces its own energy, we support local jobs and create tax revenue to help fund our schools, hospitals, roads and bridges, libraries, police and fire forces, and other services that keep our communities strong.

  • Build a 21st Century Energy Infrastructure

Michigan-first energy policy gives local energy providers and others the assurance to invest in transforming our state’s energy infrastructure so we have a truly resilient, efficient electric grid.

  • Ensure Fairness for All Michigan Consumers

AMP supports energy policies that treat all consumers fairly and ensure every Michigander can enjoy the benefits of clean, affordable, reliable energy now and in the future.

  • Secure a Sustainable Energy Future

A flexible energy supply  combined with a smarter energy infrastructure will keep Michigan in control of its energy future and able to meet our diverse energy needs.
