Renewable Energy Fact Sheet: Urban Bioenergy PDF icon Whether motivated by the desire to protect the environment, reduce utility expenses, or localize energy sources and jobs, Michigan’s interest in renewable energy is growing. In recent years, local jurisdictions have experienced an increased number of requests for renewable energy installments, and this trend is expected to continue. With renewable energy on the rise, now is the time for counties, cities, villages, and townships to prepare and determine how renewable energy installations can best fit into your community.

Coming Soon: EARP for Biomass Energy (Anaerobic Digestion)
Consumers Energy Company has announced plans to launch a new standard offer Biomass Energy program as part of their 20-year Renewable Energy Plan. Under the standard offer program, the utility will offer to purchase as much as 2,360 kilowatts of electric power generated by methane formed by anaerobic digestion technology, for up to 20 years. The utility expects to announce details of the program later this fall and begin accepting applications this winter. The program is expected to operate similar to the utility’s solar based Experimental Advanced Renewable Program (EARP–Solar).
