Consumers Energy has created a Clean Energy Plan to meet Michigan’s needs for decades to come.
A Bright Future Begins Here
Become a Clean Energy Partner
In many ways, the Clean Energy Plan is a response to customers who’ve told us they care deeply about how we handle issues such as air quality, water management and greenhouse gas emissions.
You can help us fully realize the plan’s potential for Michigan.
The main way customers can work as Clean Energy partners is to participate in the energy efficiency, demand response and renewable energy plans that will help eliminate coal and cut emissions by 90 percent by 2040. From using more efficient light bulbs and appliances to powering your air conditioner at the optimal time or subscribing to a community solar program, there are many ways you can help create a new energy future for Michigan.

The Midcontinent Independent System Operator (MISO) will then weigh any reliability issues related to the retirement of Karn 1 and 2. That process is expected to take about six months.
We are committed to maintaining affordable, competitive energy costs for all of our customers. It was a top priority as we forecasted Michigan’s future energy needs and how to meet them.
