Michigan Small Business Owners Support Government Investments in Clean Energy and Enforcement of EPA Rules

Publisher: Small Business Majority
Published: July 12, 2012

 
Introduction

Small businesses account for a significant share of Michigan’s economy. For every one large business in Michigan, there are 266 small businesses diligently working to reenergize the state’s economy. These entrepreneurs are doing everything they can to hire, grow and move their businesses forward. As part of these efforts, recent scientific opinion polling shows that Michigan’s entrepreneurs want pragmatic, innovative policies that help guide them into a competitive, modern clean energy economy. For instance, 79% of Michigan small business owners support setting standards that require utilities to meet a certain percentage of energy demand through renewable energy sources such as wind, solar and bio-fuels.

The majority (74%) of respondents also say government investments in clean energy play an important role in creating jobs and boosting the economy, and a majority of owners agree the government should continue investing in renewable energy despite the failure of Solyndra—a company that received a $535 million federal loan guarantee prior to filing for bankruptcy.
