Consumers Energy CEO Patti Poppe: Michigan Deserves Clean Energy
by Consumers Energy CEO Patti Poppe
Whether it’s water rushing over our hydroelectric dams, the sun shining on a summer afternoon, or the wind blowing through the countryside, Consumers Energy has long relied on our state’s clean natural resources to power the communities, homes and businesses we serve.
We have a track record of doing more than is required to ensure Michigan’s air, water and land are cleaner for future generations to enjoy.
For years, we’ve worked to cut emissions, save water and use more renewable energy to serve our customers. In fact, we’ve reduced our carbon emissions by 38 percent, reduced our water usage by 35 percent and avoided over one million cubic yards of landfill disposal. Even so, we are not satisfied.
