CONSUMERS ENERGY MUST DO BETTER

JOIN US IN DEMANDING CLEAN ENERGY FOR MICHIGAN RESIDENTS

MICHIGAN IS READY

In June, Consumers Energy released their draft Integrated Resource Plan. The outcome of the final Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) will substantially impact Michigan families, public health, our economy, our climate and communities disproportionately facing environmental injustices. Shutting down dirty coal plants ahead of schedule, as they have committed to, will improve public health and clean up our air and water. To facilitate this transition, Consumers Energy should expand its use of energy efficiency, energy storage and renewable energy instead of relying on more fossil gas.


The time for an ambitious plan is now!

TELL THEM TO DIVEST FROM FOSSIL FUELS AND FULLY EMBRACE CLEAN, RENEWABLE ENERGY

Consumers Energy proposed going coal-free by 2025. While this is a positive step, the energy company is planning to invest in fossil gas plants to replace their current coal-generated power. We cannot replace one fossil fuel with another.

Consumers Energy has the potential to become one of our country’s top clean energy utilities if they retire their coal plant and reject fracked gas. But to get there, they must be even bolder and focused on protecting ratepayers, public health and Michigan’s air, land and water.

AND WE MUST DEMAND BOLD ACTION NOW

FOR AN AMBITIOUS CLEAN ENERGY AGENDA

CONSUMERS ENERGY MUST DO BETTER

THE STAKES ARE HIGH

 LEADERS ARE CALLING ON CONSUMERS ENERGY TO DO BETTER

MICHIGAN ENVIRONMENTAL, COMMUNITY & LEGISLATIVE

A broad coalition of more than 75 leaders from Michigan’s local communities, the Legislature and environmental organizations called on Consumers Energy to take bold climate action. Now, we have the opportunity to make that happen by weighing in on their IRP.


This is an opportunity to create a healthier and stronger Michigan. Make your voice heard today!
