As an important part of our transition to clean energy sources, and commitment to build a sustainable future for our company, the people of Michigan and the environment we share, we retired our seven oldest coal-fired generating plants on April 15, 2016.

Retiring these plants will result in a 25% reduction in our carbon footprint, a 40% reduction in air borne sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxide and particulates, and will reduce our statewide water use by 40%. Only one other utility in the nation is moving more aggressively to replace coal fired generating plants with sustainable alternatives.
