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

With many people out of work and energy demand at an all-time high, smart utility planning is critical to the health and pocketbooks of state residents, as well as the overall state economy. Prior to COVID-19, Michigan was home to more than 125,300 clean energy jobs, making clean energy a key facet of Michigan’s economic recovery.


Thankfully, there’s a place for Consumers’ customers to have their voices heard as we move toward implementing—and improving upon—this new set of climate and equity goals for Michigan.

AND WE MUST DEMAND BOLD ACTION NOW
