Though a Trump presidency threatens to roll back progress, the United States has taken major steps to harness green energy. We’re no longer building dirty coal plants; we’re spending on billions of clean energy, here in Michigan and nationwide.
Michigan energy legislation takes promising first step. But bills in Lansing should prioritize local solar and wind jobs.
If you like clean energy, you won’t like the two energy bills the Michigan Senate Energy & Technology Committee sent to the floor on May 25. And you really won’t like them if you want more competition among utilities, more renewable energy from your utility, and the freedom to make solar energy on your property.
