Michigan's Renewable Fuels Plan Calls for $200 Million in Incentives

June 25, 2007

LANSING, Mich. --- The Michigan Renewable Fuels Commission last week released a 76-page plan to encourage production and use of alternative fuels in the state. Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm last July signed a legislative package calling for greater use of biodiesel and ethanol fuels. That legislation also required that the commission develop a renewable fuels plan. According to the Detroit Free Press, the plan's recommendations include creating a $200 million incentives package to help lure energy research projects to the state. Other recommendations include changing state laws to allow gas station franchisees to buy biofuels from alternate suppliers. The commission also supports the formation of a low-carbon emission transportation fuels program requiring the use of 25 percent renewable fuels by 2025.
