MI Power Grid

Launched in October 2019, MI Power Grid is a focused, multi-year stakeholder initiative supported by Governor Whitmer and the MPSC to maximize the benefits of the transition to clean, distributed energy resources for Michigan residents and businesses.

The MPSC recognizes that certain regulatory or compliance activities, including MI Power Grid workgroup activities, may need to be delayed or waived during the pendency of the COVID-19 crisis. In order to focus regulatory efforts during this crisis, the MPSC has issued an order modifying plans related to workgroup activity for the MI Power Grid initiative.
