5LE Celebrates Signing of Michigan Clean-Energy Reforms

5LE clients and leaders were on hand in Detroit on Tuesday, November 28 when Governor Gretchen Whitmer signed bills to accelerate Michigan’s transition to a clean energy economy and move the state towards its goal of 100% economy-wide decarbonization by 2050. In recent weeks, as the State Legislature debated the measures, 5LE Managing Partner Douglas Jester shared his support for the historic reforms with the media, including Inside Climate News which quoted him in this article:  Michigan Poised to Join States Requiring 100 Percent Clean Electricity.  Additionally, media coverage leading up to legislative action on the bills referenced The Michigan Clean Energy Framework, a recent report by 5LE and the Michigan Energy Innovation Business Council which modeled the significant economic, health, and other benefits Michigan will enjoy by passing laws similar to those signed this week (for example, see: Michigan families could see lower utility bills due to new legislation).
