Michigan Unplugged and Screwed
With 9 coal fired power plants shutting down by April of 2016, it is almost certain that we will be sitting in the dark sooner than later. You see you can’t just unplug 1.5 gigawatts of electricity and expect everything to be ok.
On the receiving end of the deal will be Michigan electrical customers who no doubt will be handed bills that are bigger than they have ever seen. In fact some fine folks that trusted the government to control their electric bills in Pennsylvania saw their home power bills in some cases go over $1200 dollars.
Sitting in the dark with electric bills that are hundreds of dollars- well that’s one way to make sure we finally say enough!
