We are a nonprofit advocacy organization that promotes energy innovation and greater access to clean, affordable and reliable energy. We advocate for clean energy based on conservative principles – meaning common sense, market-based solutions that allow fair competition and a level playing field. We believe free markets are the key to continued innovation and technological advancements in energy production, distribution, storage and efficiency. We know that the job creation and economic growth sparked by a diversified, clean energy policy don’t have to come at the expense of our environment. We are committed to bridging partisan differences on energy issues, paving the way for Michigan to be a national clean energy leader.
