Michigan officials deliver energy policy report
LANSING, Mich. (AP) - State officials have submitted the latest in a series of reports that Gov. Rick Snyder says will help Michigan make decisions about future energy policies.
The "Additional Areas" report deals with reliability of electricity, rates and prices, and natural gas infrastructure. Among the material is a section on the role of states versus the role of regional transmission operators or independent system operators for reliability.
Another section covers the linkage between natural gas prices and electricity prices.
The report was submitted by Steve Bakkal, director of the Michigan Energy Office, and John D. Quackenbush, chairman of the Michigan Public Service Commission.
It's the second of four energy reports to be delivered to the governor before Thanksgiving, following up on his special message on energy and the environment a year ago.
