MI Governor’s Energy Listening Session

Last Friday the dates for the Governor’s Energy Listening Sessions and the website for tracking was launched.  This is an excellent opportunity to share perspectives on clean energy.  Please take the time to look at the website http://michigan.gov/energy and consider participating in the following events.

Expect more information soon from 5 Lakes about how we are participating.

The public forums will be hosted by Michigan Public Service Commission Chairman John D. Quackenbush and Michigan Energy Office Director Steve Bakkal, whom the governor charged with co-chairing and overseeing the public input process.  The information gathered will assist public policymakers and the public as they take a comprehensive look at Michigan’s energy future.
