Policy Priorities

We advocate for clean transportation policies at the local, state, and federal level. 

"The heart of our country’s auto industry is Michigan, and Consumers Energy is excited to help our state lead the way into a clean automotive future via our collaboration with Clean Fuels Michigan."

Jeffrey Myrom,
Consumers Energy

Our Priorities Include —

Economy

Companies small and large are leading the way in alternative fuels, by developing new power trains, investing in manufacturing, starting new business lines, and more. We need to continue investing in clean transportation as an important economic engine for Michigan.

Jobs

Michiganders have the know-how to  build state of the art vehicles with high-paying jobs located in our own communities.

Environment

Alternative fuel vehicles reduce emissions today and into the future. Michigan’s lakes, forests, streams, and prairies deserve to be protected.

Security

Many alternative fuels can be produced and delivered by your local energy providers, meaning prices are more stable and your energy dollars stay nearby.

Current Opportunities

Local

  • Municipal fleet conversions: There is no time like the present to “flip your fleet” and begin to transition government owned vehicles to alternative fuels. We are here to help!

State

  • Michigan Council on Future Mobility and Electrification: The council is convening to set priorities and guide the work of the newly formed Office of Future Mobility and Electrification, which is focused on maintaining Michigan’s leadership as the epicenter of mobility innovation. 
  • House Bills 4803, 4804, 4805: These bills will allow electric vehicle charging stations to be installed and operated at state rest areas, which would offer Michigan residents and visitors easy access to charging on key highways across the state.

Federal

  • American Jobs Plan: President Biden’s American Jobs Plan represents a transformational step to create jobs and accelerate the transportation industry’s move towards electric vehicles. 81% of Michiganders support the plan, which would allocate $174 billion to a number of projects and programs related to electric transportation.
