Michigan would see a dramatic boost to the economy by reaching a 30% renewable energy target by the year 2027

That's according to a new study released by the Michigan Conservative Energy Forum -- a group of conservative political and business leaders who support renewable energy because it lowers energy costs for everyone, creates jobs, and is better for public health.

The forum's commissioned report says 30% renewable energy by the year 2027 would have an economic impact of $10.3 billion dollars, and create thousands of new jobs.
