To achieve a stable climate, we need to rapidly adopt clean energy. One of the best ways to drive this transition is for states to set strong renewable and efficiency standards.

Thanks to hard work of Michigan's clean energy advocates, bills that raise Michigan's renewable standard to 15% finally passed in the Senate last month. However, the bills have some serious problems - including weakening net metering. Now the bills move to the House and will be voted on this week or next We have a chance to make important changes!

- Restores fair net metering language so Michigan residents can lower their electricity bills by generating their own clean, renewable energy and get a fair price for that energy.
- Increases energy efficiency standard to 1.5% per year to require big utility companies to cut energy waste and reduce dangerous pollution. This will save ratepayers money and protect the health of Michigan families, children, and seniors.
- Restores the 50/50 split so that 50 percent of renewable energy be generated by independent power producers, which encourages competition and keeps energy prices lower.
- Has a renewable standard of at least 15% by 2021 and an interim standard of at least 12.5% by 2019
