Governor Whitmer: Add River Hydro to Your Power Plan

We - the Lake Allegan Association, Inc. - along with friends of dams around the state - have asked Governor Whitmer to put river hydro into the state's renewable energy plan and to meet with us. We did this in a letter that was released today. You can read that letter here or download it from the link at the bottom.


We borrowed this from Consumers Energy's website. Since we are commenting on river hydro throughout the state,  we believe our use of this image is fair use.  If Consumers has an objection, let us know.
Lake Allegan - Best Dam Lake

This was the brainchild of Carol Doeringer, our fantastic head of Media and Communications. Carol noticed that the plan adopted by the state of Michigan for renewable energy - the MI Healthy Climate Plan - did not include river hydropower as a source of green renewable power. We all believe this is a serious deficiency in an otherwise solid plan.


Our letter to the Governor has been promoted by dam communities across the state, particularly the terrific people in Iosco County and Plainfield Township.

385 Michiganders have signed the letter.


We hope Governor Whitmer or someone from her staff will meet with us to discuss the importance of river hydro to maintain energy stability throughout our state.


The Lake Allegan Association, Inc. is committed to protecting the environment, energy production and Lake Allegan. You can download and/or read the letter below.

AN OPEN LETTER TO GOVERNOR GRETCHEN WHITMER

February 22, 2023 Dear Governor Whitmer: We are Michiganders who may soon face the loss of lifelong investments in homes and communities by a potential plan to eliminate hydroelectric dams in Michigan. We ask you to join us in continued support of river hydro as a pillar of renewable and clean power. Our request comes at a time when at least one Michigan power company, Consumers Energy, is re-evaluating its century-long river hydro commitment.

Add River Hydro to Your MI Healthy Climate Plan

As you know, under your leadership, Michigan adopted the MI Healthy Climate Plan. It calls for Michigan to increase its carbon-neutral electricity to 60% by 2030 and to 100% by 2050. Your plan admits that ‘to achieve our goals,’ we must ‘avoid actions … that make it more difficult to reach carbon neutrality’ and 'maintain existing clean energy and energy storage assets.’

Yet nowhere does this 58-page plan mention Michigan’s river hydro operations. We view this omission as the rare oversight in an otherwise exceptional program. Omitting river hydro from Michigan’s renewable energy resources hinders your own plan and our state’s chances of achieving its necessary goals. Michigan has a wealth of river hydro resources at a time when environmental and hydropower experts are calling for state and federal investments in river hydro plants. Instead of omitting river hydro, Michigan’s climate plan should embrace substantial funding for what one environmental working group calls ‘innovative approaches to a climate-ready, river-friendly hydropower industry.’ 1


We ask you to revise the MI Healthy Climate Plan to include river hydro as a fundamental pillar in Michigan’s green and renewable future.


Encourage Your Agencies to Support River Hydro

We also note that your plan requires the Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC) to ‘analyze and more fully consider the potential community health and environmental impacts of utility investment decisions.’ We endorse the plan’s commitment to environmental justice. But MPSC must also recognize and consider economic and recreational injustice to communities, and to all state residents that use these facilities, if dams are removed.

The 13 Dams Under Review Span the State

Right now, Consumers Energy is reviewing whether it will continue to generate hydropower at thirteen dams. These 13 dams support Michigan communities in eight counties. These communities, our state’s tourism industry, and Consumers Energy have benefited enormously from the ponds, lakes, and impoundments formed by these dams. Consumers Energy claims that MPSC’s resistance to allowing some rate elasticity is hindering the company’s ability to keep up with dam maintenance, threatening the future of river hydro at these 13 dams.


A case in point: In March 2022, Consumers applied to MPSC for a rate increase, presenting costs, totaling over $350 million, needed for safety and reliability upgrades to its Hardy dam. The case is still pending, but MPSC currently rejects Consumer’s request to increase rates to fund these upgrades, which Consumers says are required to maintain its operating license.


We are not in favor of excessive power rates. But MPSC’s resistance to cost recovery for safety upgrades seems both dangerous and counterproductive. Your plan calls for an ambitious expansion of Michigan’s clean energy resources. Yet MPSC’s stance invites power companies to abandon their river hydro assets.

Removing the dams would strip communities of their lifeblood. Property values and commerce would fall, reducing tax revenues that support schools and community needs. Our recreational waters and related camping, hunting, and other outdoor activities would suffer, both for residents and for visitors whose dollars anchor many of our areas’ economies. It is certain that dam removal would harm Michigan’s hydro communities; the damage would flow throughout the state. We need your help to ensure that does not happen.

Please encourage the MPSC to prioritize preserving all forms of renewable power and communities. Governor Whitmer, retaining river hydro and our dams is undeniably consistent with your environmental policy objectives. River hydro must remain an essential element of Michigan’s clean energy future. For these reasons, we ask you to turn policy into practice: Invest in river hydro.Work with Consumers Energy and its regulators to protect our dams and to ensure the viability of our communities.

To this end, we would welcome an opportunity to meet with you and your environmental policy leaders. Will you give us an opportunity to more fully detail our position and perspective?

Yours truly, The undersigned Michiganders—People, businesses, officials, and organizations united to keep river hydro.
