LANSING, Mich. - Today, Governor Gretchen Whitmer announced that state-owned facilities will utilize 100% renewable energy by 2025, which is made possible through partnerships with DTE, Consumers Energy, and Lansing Board of Water and Light.  


 The state's clean energy target will protect public health and our environment, while attracting more clean energy jobs to Michigan. Actions like this along with the MI Healthy Climate Plan will be key to reducing the harmful impacts of climate change within the next 10 years. In addition to moving towards 100% renewable energy for state-owned buildings, the state is also launching an interagency team across state government departments to identify our potential solar footprint and develop and implement a plan to deploy solar across our state-owned lands and properties. 


Previously, Governor Whitmer signed Executive Directive 2020-10 and Executive Order 2020-182 and announced that Michigan is now on a path to decarbonization by 2050. Michigan joins eights other states to be committed to 100% economy-wide carbon neutrality.
