Last week, LS Power announced the suspension of the Mid-Michigan Energy 750- megawatt, coal-fired, electrical generating plant proposed for Midland, Michigan.
The suspension of the Mid-Michigan Energy plant should create a new era of energy opportunities for the city. It opens the way to developing affordable, clean and safe technologies and generating sustainable jobs, clean air and climate stability for Michiganders. More coal, on the other hand, subjects the city and state to serious health risks and economic costs, due to air and water pollution from coal mining, coal combustion, post-combustion wastes, and climate change. The choice is clear: Michigan should move into the clean-energy future.
However, 7 more coal plants are still proposed for the state of Michigan.
You can help roll those coal plants back and open the way for clean and sustainable alternatives. Make your voice heard through a "Letter to the Editor."
