The possibility of Upper Peninsula based electricity generation took a step forward today with the filing of a Certificate of Necessity application by Upper Michigan Energy Resources Corp. 

 
The paperwork, filed with the Michigan Public Service Commission, is to build two natural gas generating stations in the U.P: generating more than 180 megawatts at facilities to be built in Baraga and Marquette counties.
 
110th District State Representative Scott Dianda (D-Calumet) issued the following statement in regard to the potential new generation facilities for the Upper Peninsula:
 
“I am pleased to hear Upper Michigan Energy Resources Corp. (UMERC) filed with the Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC) to build two new power plants in the U.P. As a member of the House Energy Policy Committee, I support their investment of new generation that will keep and create jobs in the Upper Peninsula and will provide reliable electricity to the region. This is one piece of the solution to the U.P.’s energy situation, and I will continue to work with my colleagues in Lansing to make electric rates affordable and help attract new businesses to grow our economy.”
