Quick Facts

  • Michigan has 44 natural gas storage fields with almost 1.1 trillion cubic feet of underground storage capacity, more than any other state and almost one-eighth of the nation's gas storage capacity.
  • In 2020, natural gas generated the largest amount of Michigan’s electricity for the first time, surpassing coal, which fell to third after nuclear power. Natural gas accounted for 33% of the state’s net generation, while coal’s share declined to 27%. 
  • Renewables provided about 11% of Michigan's electricity net generation in 2020, and wind energy accounted for three-fifths of that power. Michigan ranks among the top 15 states in wind-powered electricity generation.
  • In 2019, Michigan was among the top five states in residential sector petroleum use and had the largest residential sector propane consumption in the nation.
  • Michigan’s largest hydroelectric facility is the Ludington pumped-storage plant on the shores of Lake Michigan on the Lower Peninsula. With a nameplate generating capacity of more than 2,000 megawatts, it is one of the largest pumped storage power plants in the world.
