LANSING, Mich. State Sen. Mike Nofs, chair of the Senate Energy and Technology Committee, praised the Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC) on Friday for their ongoing work on the implementation of Michigan’s Comprehensive Energy Plan.

The MPSC released their final ruling Friday afternoon on the requirements energy providers must meet to prove they have the ability to provide reliable electricity to their customers over the next four years.

“My goal from the very beginning of this process was to put Michigan consumers first while ensuring our regulators have the flexibility to accommodate the best priced energy resources now and in the future,” said Nofs, R-Battle Creek.

“Today’s decision is all about ensuring that energy providers are accountable to their customers for the long-term reliability of their energy supply. I appreciate the transparency troughout this process and the continued support of Michigan’s energy future.””

While this decision has garnered significant attention from the Legislature and the energy industry, the MPSC still has many more decisions ahead before the law is fully implemented. Interested residents can track the process online and sign up for email alerts at
