Senior Researcher Tyler Comings filed testimony on the Consumers Energy IRP in Michigan. Mr. Comings concluded that Consumers did not adequately evaluate the potential for retiring two coal units, Campbell 1 and 2, prior to 2031. He found that the Company failed to consider enough replacement options for the units as part of its preferred plan. Modeling requested by Mr. Comings (run by Witness George Evans) showed that retirement of the two units in 2023 would save ratepayers money.
