For us, loving Michigan means more than providing power. It means giving Michigan the power to be its best by leading the way in protecting the environment. We've challenged ourselves to eliminate the use of coal for generating electricity and commit to net-zero carbon emissions by 2040. To do this, more than 40% of the energy we produce will come from renewable sources and energy storage.
We have also committed to save over a billion gallons of water, reduce waste going to landfills by 35%, and enhance, restore and protect 5,000 acres of Michigan land by 2022. We exceeded our land and waste goals in 2021 and began working on new targets for the coming years. These achievements reflect a once-in-a-generation opportunity to redefine Michigan's energy future and align with our strong track record of environmental stewardship.
Here in the Great Lakes State, we love our lakes, rivers and streams. We’re beachgoers, anglers and stone skippers. We work to keep this precious resource thriving so you can enjoy our fresh and abundant waters for many seasons to come.Learn More
Call us nature lovers. Our foresters and arborists work to preserve and restore our lands. They protect the woods from invasive species and disease, ensuring their vitality. We’ve also planted acres of pollinator habitats across our lands. Many of lands are open for you to enjoy.
You can smell seasons in Michigan. Spring smells like lilacs and apple blossoms and autumn smells like falling leaves. Clean air makes it possible to enjoy the scents of every season. We’re committed to cleaner air through our efforts to reduce our carbon footprint.
Ever heard the song of the Kirtland’s warbler? Or caught an ancient lake sturgeon? We work to protect Michigan’s critters including birds, fish, bats and butterflies. We care about all wildlife, especially the threatened and endangered species that share our Great Lakes State.
A cleaner state means reducing waste. We recycle, reduce waste and conserve. Our facilities maintain centralized waste-disposal systems so we can track what’s being thrown away. We also recycle soil and construction materials used on field projects.Learn More
