Proposal 3 Q&A


Ballot proposal:
Require electric utility providers in the state of Michigan to generate 25% of their power from wind, solar, biomass, and hydroelectric by 2025. The proposal limits electric utilities to rate increases of less than 1% a year in order to keep costs low for ratepayers. The proposal directs the legislature to enact laws to encourage the employment of Michigan residents and the use of equipment manufactured in Michigan for this energy. Read the actual ballot language here.

The benefits: Estimated to bring $10 billion of new investment into the state which would create at least 74,000 jobs that can't be outsourced, reduce our dependency on dirty coal fired power plants, reduce pollution and help keep our air and water clean, reduce the amount of money spent on out-of-state coal (currently $1.8 billion a year). Get all the facts on this proposal here.

Logistics: We got the signatures needed to put the 25 by 25 intiative on the ballot - Now YOUR help is needed to make it the law!  Michigan's biggest utilities have already spent millions of dollars trying to block this clean energy future - to pass 25 by 25 people like you need to talk with your friends, family and neighbors, and get them out to vote YES in November!                           It may take 20 sec or so for videos to load.
