Proposal 3

Proposal 3 would amend the state constitution to establish a minimum standard for renewable energy.  This proposal would require utilities to provide at least 25% of their annual retail sales of electricity from renewable energy sources, including wind, solar, biomass and hydropower by 2025.  Limit to not more than 1% per year electric utility rate increases charged to consumers only to achieve compliance with the renewable energy standard.  Allow annual extensions of the deadline to meet the 25% standard in order to prevent rate increases over the 1% limit.  Require the legislature to enact additional laws to encourage the use of Michigan made equipment and employment of Michigan residents.  Should this proposal be approved?
