9/17/15 - Michigan Chemistry Council Supports Competitive Bidding and Pro-Jobs Energy Policies

LANSING, MI, September 17, 2015 – The Michigan Chemistry Council (MCC) today applauded the introduction of legislation that would require the competitive bidding of new energy resources for Michigan’s electric customers.

“Michigan’s ratepayers deserve to know whether they are getting the best return on their investments,” said MCC Executive Director John Dulmes. “This process would truly allow for an ‘all-of-the-above’ assessment of potential resources, whether it be energy efficiency or demand-side management, new transmission capacity, power purchase agreements, or new generation like natural gas, renewables, or distributed generation.”

9/1/15 - Michigan Chemistry Council Urges “All of the Above” State Response to EPA Carbon Mandate

LANSING, MI, September 1st, 2015

The Michigan Chemistry Council (MCC) today urged the Snyder administration to pursue an “all of the above” response to the EPA’s new carbon mandate, calling for legal, administrative, and legislative actions to best protect Michigan’s ratepayers and grow jobs.

 “Michigan’s chemical companies are committed to environmental sustainability,” said MCC Executive Director John Dulmes. “Our industry’s products provide solutions to many of our planet’s biggest challenges, and our members are leaders in reducing their own environmental footprints. However, we believe the EPA’s recently-finalized Clean Power Plan (CPP) and associated carbon reduction mandates may unnecessarily drive up energy costs and hurt American manufacturing.”

LANSING, MI, July 15, 2015 – As the Senate Energy and Technology Committee begins hearings on comprehensive energy legislation, the Michigan Chemistry Council (MCC) urges the Legislature to focus on policies that will help our state become more competitive on energy costs and grow manufacturing jobs.

“Michigan continues to lag behind our neighboring states on energy affordability, a disadvantage that burdens job growth in many industries and costs Michigan’s citizens more of their hard-earned income each month,” said John Dulmes, Executive Director of the MCC.
