Affordable and Reliable Energy, A Cleaner Environment, No Regrets for Our Future
There are things we can do today that benefit us right now and pay dividends tomorrow, no matter what the future holds. It's all about adaptability -- the sort of wisdom that will serve our state well when it comes to enacting new energy policies and protecting our environment.
These wise, adaptable energy policies will stand on three pillars -- reliability, affordability and a protected environment.
Energy is the life blood of Michigan's economy, and without a reliable and affordable supply, our economy would simply shut down. But what good is a strong economy if we can't enjoy our environment -- the Great Lakes, our forests, fields, rivers and streams? Together, energy and our environment go hand in hand, and we must consider both together when planning for the future.
