LANSING, Mich. – The Michigan Conservative Energy Forum (MCEF) today issued the following statement regarding Consumers Energy’s recently released Integrated Resource Plan (IRP), which is a long-term energy planning process required by law. The following statement can be attributed to Ed Rivet, executive director of MCEF.
“Consumers Energy’s IRP is a major step forward for Michigan ratepayers. The plan will result in significant investments in clean energy and energy efficiency, moving our state closer to a diversified ‘all of the above’ energy strategy, and in turn helping to reduce electricity costs for Michigan families and businesses. We applaud Consumers Energy for taking steps to ensure Michiganders have more affordable, reliable and clean energy.”
