The Michigan Oil and Gas Association has submitted comments on the The U.P. Energy Task Force's draft recommendations related to the U.P.'s propane supply. The Task Force's 14 draft recommendations to the Governor on propane availability in the Upper Peninsula can be found here, in addition to the technical report prepared by Public Sector Consultants on propane supply and possible impacts if delivery were to be interrupted.
According to the U.P. Energy Task Force, the draft recommendations suggest actions the Governor, Legislature, and state agencies can take to better track and anticipate supply and distribution, increase storage capacity, bolster supply infrastructure, minimize disruption impact, consumer protections, and provide a more cohesive plan for those who are disproportionately affected by high energy costs in the U.P.
The public comments comments will be shared with U.P. Energy Task Force members for possible inclusion into the final report, which is due to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer by April 17.
A full report on overall U.P. energy issues and alternatives is due to Gov. Whitmer by March 31, 2021.
