The article reports that Michigan's two largest energy companies DTE Energy Co. and CMS Energy Corp. executives are expected to lay out the need for a package of bills, recently passed by the state House, that they say sets the stage for them to move forward with new power plants and investment in renewable energy. The legislation, among other things, sets a 10 percent limit on the amount of a utility's customer load that can go to alternate suppliers.
