Gov. Snyder Releases Goals For Mich. Energy Policy

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Gov. Rick Snyder says Michigan needs an energy policy with an emphasis on eliminating energy waste, and replacing coal with natural gas and renewable sources.

Snyder on Thursday released several goals for the state's energy policy, which his office said should amount to a "no regrets" energy future by 2025. The Republican governor said in a statement that the goals should be "reasonable, achievable and efficient."

Snyder says policy should have adaptability, reliability and affordability. He says it also should protect the environment.

The recommendations come after Snyder's Special Message on Energy and the Environment last year and after the submission last month of four energy reports by Michigan Public Service Commission Chairman John Quackenbush and Michigan Energy Office Director Steve Bakkal.
