Attorney General Intervenes In I&M Power Plan

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel is intervening in an Indiana Michigan Power filing with the Michigan Public Service Commission to determine if the utility is following an energy plan that will protect the state’s natural resources. Her office says Nessel on Thursday intervened in I&M’s Integrated Resource Plan, currently under review by the MPSC. I&M’s Integrated Resource Plan details the five, ten, and 15 year projections for its energy needs and how it plans to meet them. I&M is required to review its current generation, forecast its future energy needs, and outline what power plants might retire and how it will make up that lost energy supply. Nessel says she intends to “review every detail of I&M’s IRP application and engage other environmental and consumer advocacy partners to ensure affordable, reliable and renewable energy products are the company’s top priority.”
