Michigan Governor Rick Snyder (R) said November 28 that he wants to take the next year to have an open dialogue on renewable energy, waiting until 2015 before establishing new requirements for utilities’ renewable energy purchases. The state requires that 10 percent of all energy come from renewable sources by 2015, and utilities are on track to meet the goal. A ballot initiative that would have amended the state constitution to require utilities to obtain 25 percent of their electricity from renewable sources by 2025 failed.
