Starting Tuesday April 18, Consumers Energy is hosting a series of virtual public open houses to gather suggestions for its Clean Energy Plan, which eliminates coal and achieves net zero carbon emissions by 2040.
The open houses cover topics such as wind and solar power, protecting our environment, building a smarter power grid and what customers can do to help.
“We are determined to create the best Clean Energy Plan for Michigan – and we can’t do it alone,” said Jessica Woycehoski, a senior engineer in Electric Supply Planning at Consumers Energy.
“We need to understand what’s most important to our customers and key stakeholders and how they see the state’s energy future taking shape in the next 20 years,” Woycehoski added.
The public can visit MICleanEnergy.com for links to join the events, which are each scheduled to last 45 minutes. The schedule is as follows.
- 2 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 18: Our Clean Energy Plan
- 2 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 15: Road to Renewable Energy
- 1 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 13: Protecting Our Planet

The public input will help inform Consumers Energy’s suggested Clean Energy Plan updates to the Michigan Public Service Commission in June 2021.
