The Michigan Public Service Commission announced today that it has posted for public review all the applications the Commission has received in response to a request for proposals for funding through a renewable energy and electrification infrastructure enhancement and development grant program.

The deadline for applications through the $21.3 million grant program was Feb. 21. Under Public Act 119 of 2023, the MPSC must allow all applications to be reviewed by interested parties directly affected by the proposals, including business interests, nonprofit organizations, local units of government, tribal governments, environmental groups and others.

The MPSC received 52 proposals seeking a total of more than $147 million. All applications that met the Feb. 21 deadline are now available for review in unredacted form at the MPSC’s webpage for the grant program. Comments may be submitted through each proposal’s page and are able to be viewed by the public.

The grant program will prioritize funding for infrastructure or planning projects that meet one or more of the MI Healthy Climate Plan goals to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and transition toward economy-wide carbon neutrality.

After a 45-day review period, applicants will have a 15-day window to modify their proposal based on the comments received and resubmit, if desired. The final deadline for revised or modified proposals is April 29, 2024. The MPSC anticipates notifying selected grant recipients of their award status in September 2024.

The anticipated grant start date is Nov. 15, 2024.
