A story from the Detroit Free Press is well worth highlighting, in our opinion:
The Clean Energy Coalition is just six years old, but its impact is starting to ripple across the state.
Its initiatives have included winning a $500,000 U.S. Department of Energy grant to develop a statewide plan to smooth the way for electric vehicles. Called Plug-In Ready Michigan, the plan is to complete a study of practical issues for making it easier to own and charge an electric vehicle. The plan is expected to be done in September.
The coalition also is working on a federal program to make the housing stock in Michigan more energy efficient. It also looks at commercial buildings. The group provides energy audits of houses to help residents improve the energy efficiency of their homes.
