LANSING, Mich. (AP) — A group looking at ways to meet energy needs in the Upper Peninsula has submitted recommendations to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.

The state says the U.P. Energy Task Force wants to improve affordability, enhance reliability and promote energy security. The recommendations include encouraging energy providers to participate in a regional electricity plan, modernizing the grid to allow wider use of high-tech smart meters and examining rate disparity among customers.

A year ago, the task force made recommendations on propane availability in the Upper Peninsula.

Both reports will be posted to Michigan.gov/UPEnergyTaskForce.
