On October 14, 2004 the Michigan Public Service Commission issued on it's own motion, Order U-14231 to begin an investigation into future capacity requirements.
The Capacity Need Forum (CNF) was created as a collaborative industry-wide process to assess the projected need for electrical generating capacity in Michigan over the short-, intermediate-, and long-term future. The goal is to provide policy recommendations within the current scope of the Commission's jurisdiction and under currently existing legislation, in order to assure that additional generation could be built if needed.
The final CNF Staff report is due January 3, 2006. See Capacity Need Forum Documents in the section below for Volumes 1 and 2 of the final report.
Volume 1 contains the Executive Summary, Report and Appendices A and B.
Volume 2 contains each work group final report (Appendices C-G) and CNF participant reponses to Staff's Sept 05 proposal (Appendix H).
