Task force to discuss propane pricing in Upper Peninsula

ESCANABA, Mich. (AP) — Propane pricing and customer protections are on the agenda this week at a U.P. Energy Task Force meeting in Escanaba.

Wednesday’s meeting at Bay de Noc Community College is open to the public to comment on energy issues in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

The task force is assessing overall energy needs in the Upper Peninsula and how they are being met. It also is tasked with identifying and evaluating potential changes that could occur to energy supply and distribution.

A plan focused on alternative means to supply propane to the Upper Peninsula must be submitted by March 31 to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. A final report is due by March 31, 2021.
