Reports prepared for Governor Snyder in the fall of 2013 concluded that Michigan's existing efficiency standard is saving more than $3 for every $1 invested and that wind power is now cheaper than coal power and competitive with natural gas.

Michigan needs to expand its use of low-cost, job-creating clean energy. Investing in renewable energy sources like wind and solar will create thousands of good jobs, reduce utility costs, and pave the way to a cleaner Michigan future.
