The following is the Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC) Staff’s calculation for regional average fuel mix, emissions, and high-level nuclear waste. This data has been prepared as directed by the Commission in Order Case No. U-12487, dated June 5, 2001 and December 20, 2001, concerning supplier disclosure standards as required under 2000 PA 141. Suppliers may rely upon this information to meet their disclosure requirements for the year 2016.
