New Conservative Group Seeks "Right" Approach to Energy Policy

January 6, 2014



"It's not a 'red' or a 'blue' thing. This is more about the well-being of the folks in Michigan."

Larry Ward, Executive Director of the Michigan Conservative Energy Forum.

Expanding renewable energy in Michigan will be one of Governor Rick Snyder’s priorities this year. A recent report to the governor says the state could generate a third of its power from renewable sources within 20 years. State law mandates 10 percent renewable energy production by the end of next year. A new conservative group has formed to push for more renewable energy and energy efficiency. Larry Ward is the executive director of the Michigan Conservative Energy Forum. He tells WDET’s Pat Batcheller it’s time for Republicans to lead the way on energy policy.

The Michigan Conservative Energy Forum will have a representative at the Greater Oakland Republican Club’s monthly meeting Tuesday January 7th at the Orion Eagles Club on Clarkston Road.
