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.

Responsible regulation is one of the foundational pillars of Michigan’s energy market. A well-regulated energy market is absolutely critical for Michigan. Responsible regulation helps keep energy reliable, affordable, and increasingly clean and sustainable—all while ensuring fairness for all Michigan homes and businesses.
