Representative Yousef Rabhi (D-Ann Arbor) and Senator Stephanie Chang (D-Detroit) introduced legislation requiring all Michigan utilities’ energy generation to be renewable by 2050. Under the proposal, utilities would gradually increase renewable generation and storage in order to eliminate fossil fuel generation by the target date. The scheduled increase is as follows: 25% by 2025, 50% by 2032, 75% by 2040, and 100% by 2050. Current law requires that 15% of the states’ energy must come from renewable sources by 2021. Representative Rabhi’s bill has been referred to the House Energy Committee and Senator Chang’s legislation has been referred to the Senate Energy and Technology Committee.
