Dear Council Member <name>
I’m writing to ask that you pursue the creation of a full municipal electric utility. I support efforts of Ann Arbor for Public Power, which has collected over 1200 signatures in favor of a study into municipalization. DTE has consistently under invested in our electrical infrastructure while overcharging us for the service they provide. Most importantly they are the third dirtiest major utility in the country with over 70% of their generation coming from fossil fuels, mainly coal, and only 10% from renewable sources. This is unacceptable and I believe that municipalization is our only realistic path to break free of their monopoly and achieve our A2Zero renewable power goals. I hope you will support the efforts to move towards public power in Ann Arbor by voting for a feasibility study into municipalization.
