Consumers Coal

Consumers Energy has announced it will cease operations at the Campbell generating complex in Port Sheldon Township by 2025. How will that effect the Grand Haven school district, Ottawa County and local governments?

Consumers Energy recently announced that it plans to close its J.H. Campbell Generating Plant in Port Sheldon Township as soon as 2025 – a move that would have a financial impact on the Grand Haven school district and local governments.

The planned closure is part of Consumers’ new Clean Energy Plan, which seeks to make the energy company coal free by that time.

NO COAL? WHY? DID WE NOT LEARN A VERY VALUABLE LESSON THIS PAST YEAR WHEN TEXAS HAD FREEZING TEMPERATURES FOR 5 DAYS AND THE WINDMILLS STOOL STILL, FROZEN. NO ONE HAD ELECTRICITY FOR 5 DAYS. THIS NO COAL IS A UNWISE DECISSION. TIME WILL SHOW DEPENDING ON WIND.. IS INEFFECTIVE AND WILL CAUSE MANY WATER LINES TO FREEZE AND BREAK, CAUSING THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS OF DAMAGE. TEXAS! FREEZE!

A SOCIAL EXPERIMENT GONE WRONG.
