Michiganders Can Give Energy Input Tuesday at Virtual Open House


Consumers Energy is hosting a series of virtual public open houses to gather suggestions for its Clean Energy Plan, which eliminates coal and helps achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2040.

The open houses cover topics such as wind and solar power, protecting our environment, building a smarter power grid and what can customers can do to help.

“We are determined to create the best Clean Energy Plan for Michigan – and we can’t do it alone,” said Jessica Woycehoski, Director of Electric Supply Planning at Consumers Energy. “We need to understand what’s most important to our customers and key stakeholders and how they see the state’s energy future taking shape in the next 20 years.”

The public can visit MICleanEnergy.com for links to join the events, which are each scheduled to last 45 minutes. The remaining schedule:

  • 1 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 13: Protecting Our Planet
  • 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 10: A Smarter Energy Future

Recordings of two earlier open houses are also available at MICleanEnergy.com, where viewers can submit questions and comments:

  • Aug. 18: Our Clean Energy Plan
  • Sept. 15: Road to Renewable Energy

The public input will help inform Consumers Energy’s suggested Clean Energy Plan updates to the Michigan Public Service Commission in June 2021.
