Nearly everything about how we produce, transmit, and ultimately consume energy as a state is changing to better meet Michiganders’ needs in both the short and long term.
Michigan’s energy system is evolving in dramatic ways. Nearly everything about how we produce and consume energy as a state is changing to better meet Michiganders’ needs in both the short and long term:
Transforming our energy system is fundamental to ensure energy remains reliable, affordable, and sustainable—and keep Michigan in control of its energy future. The process of transformation is complex and involves many small and large changes that will add up to a new way of thinking about energy for everyone in Michigan.
Ensuring our transformation is strategic and successful will require all of us—consumers, energy providers, and policymakers—to work together.
Here’s how the three stages of energy delivery fit together to ensure Michiganders have access to reliable energy whenever we need it—24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Michigan is in the midst of a total energy transformation. Our 2016 energy law—passed with overwhelming bipartisan support—established a solid framework for policymakers, regulators, and local energy companies to better plan for and meet the energy needs of all Michiganders.
Michigan is on the right path to a cleaner, more sustainable energy future—one that makes sense for Michigan’s unique climate, geography, and economy.
