DTE plan reveals flaws showing bias against clean renewable energy
DTE Energy today submitted their integrated resource plan -- a proposed long-term energy plan -- to the Michigan Public Service Commission, and community and environmental organizations urged them to reject it.
Michigan Environmental Council is a formal intervener in MPSC proceedings, committed to ensuring Michigan’s transition to clean energy is equitable and delivers the best possible deal for residential ratepayers. We released the following statement regarding DTE's IRP:
“Integrated resource plans are incredibly important for mapping out our energy future. It's critical that the plans the MPSC ultimately approves are based on sound analysis,” said Charlotte Jameson, energy policy and legislative affairs director of Michigan Environmental Council. “DTE submitted a plan riddled with flaws that bias the outcome away from clean, renewable energy. These errors are clear to see, especially when you compare their plan with the one Consumers Energy submitted. As interveners charged with protecting Michigan’s environment and residential ratepayers, we will continue to weigh in on each step of this IRP process to make sure we get the best outcome for Michigan’s residents.”
