Green generation sm is home-grown energy. That's extremely resourceful for all of us.
The concept of renewable energy is a natural energy option for Michigan. That's why it makes sense that Green Generation would come from Consumers Energy. After all, we've helped keep Michigan running strong for more than 115 years.
You can help to harvest home-grown energy.
Green Generation reduces our dependence on traditional energy sources. Consumers Energy purchases Michigan-based wind power and energy from landfill gas to create the Green Generation energy mix. Your investment also helps preserve our natural resources.
Renewable Resources Program Report
This report, required by the Michigan Public Service Commission, describes the major activities for the Green Generation Program.
This energy also helps power our state's economy.
Renewable energy is good for Michigan's economy, too:
- Through the development of local renewable energy projects, Green Generation helps create jobs in construction, operation and maintenance.
- Green Generation helps our economy by adding to the tax base of the communities where the generating stations are located.
- Green Generation helps Michigan farmers earn extra revenue from leases for wind turbines located on their property, while those wind turbines have minimal effect on the use of the property for farming.
