Utility Reform...
(2007-12-06)
(wgvu) - The state House is working toward trying
to require Michigan utilities to provide 10 percent of the state's
energy from renewable sources by 2015.
A House committee held a hearing on the developing proposal
Thursday. The Senate likely will have a competing version of the
legislation and a compromise would have to be found.
The bipartisan House plan would include incentives for using
Michigan-made equipment when generating power from renewable
sources. That could include wind turbines and solar panels with
Michigan-made parts.
Governor Jennifer Granholm says alternative and renewable energy
could provide a boost to Michigan's economy.
