Client: Consumers Energy
Senior Researcher Tyler Comings testified on two coal units (Karn 1 and 2) as part of the Consumers Energy rate case in Michigan. Mr. Comings concluded that non-essential capital investments for Karn Units 1 and 2 should be denied by the Commission. These units have been shown to be uneconomic in past analyses performed by Consumers Energy. Mr. Comings concluded that delaying a retirement decision would only cost ratepayers more.
