Fighting for a clean energy future in Michigan, to protect our health, reinvest in our communities, and reduce climate-changing pollution.
Michigan is in a unique position to maximize carbon reductions achieved through the renewable energy and energy efficiency building blocks. Strategies that fall within these building blocks include demand-side energy efficiency programs, renewable distributed generation, and smart grid enhancements.
Clean Water Action delivers 10,000 letters calling for increase in state’s renewable energy standard
Just days after Gov. Rick Snyder announced his goals for renewable energy and energy efficiency, Clean Water Action delivered more than 10,000 letters from Michiganders across the state to Snyder and policymakers in Lansing.

“The appointment of a former BP lobbyist to the DEQ is a slap in the face to Michigan residents and especially the people of Flint,” said Clay Carpenter, campaign organizer for Clean Water Action. “We need a leader who is committed to environmental stewardship and protecting our water instead of a lobbyist for a company with one of the worst records for pollution in the country.”
