Energy bills head to lame-duck showdown; House Republicans, biz groups split
A Michigan energy bill.
This has been the stuff of legend. Like seeing the Abominable Snowman!
So the energy bill passed the senate with bi-partisan approval and is before the House; which is seeing an army of lobbyist. It includes:
1. Increase in renewable support from 15 to 21% (not that big a change)
2. Lifted caps on energy efficiency spending by utilities (think higher rates)
3. Eliminates competition amongst wholesale electric energy suppliers (think utility monopoly is only choice). Currently only 10% of residents can get pricing direct from wholesale suppliers. They want to eliminate even this.
The utilities want these changes, most public advocates and companies and business groups DO NOT.
