Gov. Rick Snyder statement on final passage of landmark energy legislation

Thursday, December 15, 2016

"We now have a statewide energy policy that will save Michigan residents millions of dollars on their electric bills, alleviate concerns about having enough capacity to power the daily activities of 10 million people and find new ways to use our existing energy grid more efficiently. This policy also allows for more consumer choice in our growing market.

“The bills protect our environment by making it easier for Michigan to develop its own energy sources, instead of buying coal from various states. Our energy will be more affordable, more reliable and more green.

"This achievement continues sending the message that Michigan has a very bright future."
