DETROIT (WWJ/AP) – A new report finds that most of Michigan’s electricity providers are on pace to generate 10 percent of their power from renewable sources by 2015.
The Michigan Public Service Commission’s annual renewable energy report finds the use of wind, sun and other renewables was expected to have reached 4.7 percent last year – up from 3.6 percent the previous year.
The report also finds the average price of renewable energy contracts is less than what was forecast and substantially lower than new coal-fired plants.
