MSU, Consumer's Energy Team Up For Move To Natural Gas


The Spartans believe in natural gas.

Michigan State University and Consumers Energy recently announced a partnership to convert the University's main source of campus power from coal to clean, efficient natural gas.


"Michigan is at a historic time, making the transition from coal to cleaner forms of energy. We are pleased to play a role in Michigan State University's transition, providing the natural gas that will fuel the T.B. Simon Power Plant," said Garrick Rochow, Consumers Energy's vice president and chief customer officer.

"We look forward to continuing to collaborate with our friends at MSU to help them 'Go Green,' meeting the needs of their campus and academic community sustainably."

MSU President Lou Anna Simon announced that the university will fuel the Simon power plant with natural gas. Consumers Energy is playing an important role in the transition, upgrading its natural gas system to ensure the plant has a reliable fuel supply.
