MI Power Grid Program Aims to Help Michiganders With Transition to Renewable Power

The state has created a new program to help Michiganders and businesses adapt to the transition to renewable power.

Thursday Governor Gretchen Whitmer announced the MI Power Grid program.

Its goal is to help give information about clean energy technology and work to add it to the state’s power grid.

The program will also sponsor sessions about adapting to changes in the industry and how this would impact regulations.

The MI Power Grid program comes as older coal plants are phased out as wind and solar energy becomes more common.

Consumers Energy says climate change is an issue everyone needs to pay attention to.

They also say they admire the state and Governor Whitmer for working with them and others as they try to preserve Michigan’s natural resources for the future.
