Palisades Power Purchase Agreement to End Early; Nuclear Plant to Close in 2018

COVERT, Mich. – Entergy Corporation (NYSE: ETR) and Consumers Energy, Michigan’s largest utility and the principal subsidiary of CMS Energy (NYSE: CMS), have agreed to an early termination of their power purchase agreement (PPA) for the Palisades Power Plant in Covert Township in 2018, lowering the costs to Consumers’ customers by as much as $172 million over four years. The agreement is subject to regulatory approvals. Separately, and assuming regulatory approvals are obtained for the PPA termination, Entergy intends to shut down the Palisades nuclear power plant permanently on Oct. 1, 2018.

petitionDECLINE TO SIGN!

Deep-pocketed sponsors are behind the circulation of petitions this year that are intended to prompt the state Legislature to repeal the Michigan Prevailing Wage Act of 1965.

PLEASE DON’T SIGN THE PETITION: repeal would lower workers’ wages, make construction sites less safe, and attract out-of-state contractors and tradespeople to work on building projects funded by Michigan taxpayers. Prevailing wage has benefited Michigan in many ways for 50 years.

You can help. Tell your lawmaker not to support Prevailing Wage Repeal: Click Here To Take Action
