Environmentalists ask MPSC to Reconsider DTE’s Billion-Dollar Natural Gas Plant
By Tracy Samilton
Environmental groups haven’t given up trying to stop DTE Energy from building a $1 billion natural gas plant.
The groups are asking the Michigan Public Service Commission to reconsider the permit it approved for the plant.
Margrethe Kearney is with the Environmental Law and Policy Center. She says renewable energy becomes cheaper and more reliable every year.
“And it just doesn’t make sense for Michigan to say we’re going to build a huge natural gas plant, which means of course we won’t be building any of that other stuff,” she says.
