Meeting Electricity Needs in MI

Nearly a third of Michigan’s electricity needs could be met by tripling the amount of power from in-state renewable sources by 2030, at nearly no cost to consumers, according to a new report. The Union of Concerned Scientists released the report yesterday that found if the state were to ramp up renewables at the same growth rate as the current renewable energy standard of 1.5 percent per year, Michigan could boost its in-state renewable energy production to 32.5 percent in 2030. The report says increasing renewables at that rate would cost consumers just 0.3 percent more over the next 15 years, rather than letting the current standard expire.
