Policy SummaryMichigan's 21st Century Electric Energy Plan was issued in January 2007 and includes CHP. The Plan looks at Michigan's electric needs for the next 2 to 20 years, providing estimates of expected generation from various resources and technology types, as well as supporting economic development, improving environmental quality and promoting resource diversity. CHP is briefly included in the State's analysis of potential energy sources. Michigan expects that there is a potential for the development of at least 180 MW of new CHP capacity. The Plan recommends that net-metering tariffs be made available for all qualifying renewable and CHP facilities <150 kW.
Policy Targets/Compliance DeadlinesThe Michigan energy plan mentions modeling that "indicates a potential for at least 1,100MW and up to 2,700 MW of new electric power capacity development in Michigan from renewable resources with another 180 MW available from CHP."
