Michigan utilities have met a target of generating one-tenth of the state’s electricity using wind, solar, and other renewable resources.
There’s a new goal, but that could be challenged this year in the Legislature.
An energy package adopted last year sets a new 15 percent goal. And a report by the Michigan Public Service Commission says utilities are well positioned to meet the target.
But the renewable mandate has its critics. They include Republican state Representative Gary Glenn. He chairs the House Energy Committee.
