“During her tenure as executive director, Valerie Brader helped move Michigan toward an ‘all-of-the above’ energy policy that has helped reduce energy waste across the state and provided more renewable energy options for Michigan residents, and MCEF applauds her service,” said Larry Ward, executive director of MCEF. “Among other accomplishments, Ms. Brader helped develop Michigan’s landmark 2016 energy laws that are creating jobs, sparking innovation in the energy sector, attracting businesses to Michigan, and helping ensure families have affordable, reliable, and clean energy for years to come. We thank Ms. Brader for her dedication to this great state and wish her all the best in her next endeavor. We hope to work with her again in the future, and in the meantime, we look forward to continuing our work with the MAE, the Michigan Public Service Commission, and the Legislature to elevate Michigan to a national clean energy leader.”
