Post Fossil Fuel Michigan
In a move towards a Post Fossil Fuel Michigan on February 25, 2009, companies applying to build coal-fired electric plants in Michigan were told they would have to show they have considered cleaner alternatives.
Developers in Holland and Rogers City were told they would have to justify coal in contrast to other alternatives. Other proposals in the state, such as Consumer's Energy Karn/Weadock facility, will have to meet the same standard.
