Sustainability

Climate change is currently our defining environmental issue, and we are taking a hands-on approach to combat it. We are creating a cleaner environment and brighter future in Michigan — for our children, grandchildren and generations to come.

Within the next four decades, our entire energy portfolio will be producing carbon-free energy. Our goals are:

  • Cut carbon emissions in half by 2028 and 80% by 2040
  • Achieve net-zero emissions (carbon neutrality) by 2050

We are the largest producer of wind and solar energy in the state, generating enough clean energy to power 700,00 Michigan homes.

We will produce enough renewable energy in the next few years to power nearly one million homes.

We want to reach our sustainability goals with your help, passion and persistence.

Our clean future is YOU.

Come join us and be part of the Michigan Spirit
