Michigan utility Consumers Energy is commencing a new program to help large businesses make a transition to 100% renewable energy.
Consumers Energy recently received approval from the Michigan Public Service Commission to create the pilot program, allowing large businesses to match their energy use with renewable energy sources.
“Large businesses increasingly are making commitments to a future powered by clean energy, and we are pleased to give them the tools to do that,” comments Brian Rich, Consumers Energy’s senior vice president of customer experience and technology. “This is good for our environment and our state. Large employers looking to locate or expand in Michigan should know that energy providers like Consumers Energy can help them achieve their clean energy goals.”
The proposed program offers a blueprint for businesses that make renewable energy commitments. The utility notes it is open to asking the Michigan Public Service Commission for permission to expand the program if there is customer interest.
