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.[1]

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.
