Proposal 3: Renewable Energy

PROPOSAL 12-3

A PROPOSAL TO AMEND THE STATE CONSTITUTION

TO ESTABLISH A STANDARD FOR RENEWABLE ENERGY

This proposal would:

    Require electric utilities to provide at least 25% of their annual retail sales of electricity from renewable energy sources, which are wind, solar, biomass, and hydropower, by 2025.

      Limit to not more than 1% per year electric utility rate increases charged to consumers only to achieve compliance with the renewable energy standard.

      Allow annual extensions of the deadline to meet the 25% standard in order to prevent rate increases over the 1% limit.

      Require the legislature to enact additional laws to encourage the use of Michigan made equipment and employment of Michigan residents.

      Should this proposal be approved?

      YES

      NO
