Utility Regulation

Statewide Ballot Issues: Proposal 2012-03
Renewable Energy

Memo 1118 ( September 2012 ) 14 pages

On November 6, 2012, Michigan voters will decide whether to amend the Michigan Constitution to require electric utilities to provide at least 25 percent of their retail electricity sales from renewable sources.

The Citizens Research Council of Michigan has published an analysis of this proposed constitutional amendment that describes the provisions of the amendment and explains the issue of renewable energy. The report compares renewable energy production in Michigan to other states, examines constitutional issues that are unique to a proposal such as this, looks at how Michigan's renewable energy law would have to change to carry out the provisions of the amendment, and explores issues related to energy production and transmission that would affect the electric utilities.

Report 302, An Analysis of Selected Issues Regarding the Regulation of Public Utilities in Michigan Examined the utility regulation process in Michigan, compared the major features of that process to those of other states; examined the constitutional and statutory framework; and the organizational and management relationship between the public service commission and the department in which it is located.
