The Lunch Bunch with CONSUMERS ENERGY Thurs. March 5
Posted February 25, 2015
WHO: Chris Thelen, Area Manager, Consumers Energy WHAT: Meeting Michigan's Future Energy Needs WHEN: Thursday, March 5 from 11:30-1pm WHERE: The Chamber office (220 S. Bridge St.) New and changing federal regulations on air quality and carbon emissions will change Michigan's energy landscape in the next two to five years. A total of nine coal plants will shut down in the state by 2016 due to air quality rules. Even more plant retirements are expected by 2020 as the Environmental Protection Agency's Clean Power Plan begins to take affect. Estimates predict the Lower Peninsula of Michigan will be up to 3,000 megawatts short of the power our homes and businesses need. That's a loss of enough power to serve 2.1 million homes - a city three times the size of Detroit. Unfortunately, our current energy policy isn't equipped for the changes and challenges that are rapidly coming our way. Learn what Michigan must do to make sure we have affordable, reliable energy for our homes and businesses well into the future.
