There's a saying that goes: If you aren't at the table, you're on the menu.
Right now, Michigan utility regulators are writing the rules that will determine whether we move towards community-owned clean energy or dirty methane gas. But thus far, there are no requirements that community voices will be heard. Help us tell the Public Service Commission that Michigan citizens - and especially those impacted by pollution, energy poverty, and environmental racism - need our voices heard. Because if we aren't at the table - you know we're on the menu.
If we accept business as usual, we can expect a process driven by big investors and executives leading to more dirty energy, pollution, and poverty. We know that clean energy and efficiency can make power more reliable and affordable, while making jobs and keeping resources in our community. But to get to that future, we need to demand it - and we need a seat at the table.
