Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer signed Democrat-proposed energy bills, implementing some of the strictest energy mandates in the country.

The plan requires utility providers to transition to completely carbon-free energy generation by 2040, with specific targets set for 2030 and 2035.

Proponents claim the bills will create jobs and lower utility costs, but critics argue that the legislation will increase power outages, industrialize farmland, and raise costs for residents while providing less reliable electricity.

“With passage of these game-changing bills, Michigan will become a national leader on clean energy,” wrote Whitemer.

“These bills will help us make more clean, reliable energy right here in Michigan, creating tens of thousands of good-paying jobs, and lowering utility costs for every Michigander by an average of $145 a year,” declared the Michigan governor.

“This does nothing to correct the issues on the distribution system,” complained Michigan Senate Minority Leader Aric Nesbitt

“All this does is increases the likelihood of power outages and decreases reliability,” claimed Nesbitt.

“Currently, 50,000 acres are used for renewable energy,” he explained.

“This will mandate that over 350,000 new acres of land will have to be pushed into renewable energy,” said Nesbitt.

Republican House Floor Leader Bryan Posthumus said, “Without a doubt, these mandates will lead to higher costs and lower reliability.”

“In government, you literally get what you pay for,” Posthumus explained.

“By mandating wind and solar, only the governor has taken many other necessary and useful options off the table to score points with the coastal elites,” he continued.

Adding, “Michigan could have been the national leader in how to do renewable the right way. Instead, Whitmer chose the strong-arm approach with an eye on a 2028 presidential run. It really is truly disappointing.”

The mandate has sparked frustration among residents and criticism from both environmental activists and Republicans.
