LANSING – The U.P. Energy Task Force is scheduled to meet Wednesday to discuss the role electric utilities play in providing power to residents and business in the Upper Peninsula.

The Task Force will meet from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Eastern time using Microsoft Teams.

To participate, go to Michigan.gov/UPEnergyTaskForce for the Microsoft Teams meeting link. For those who are only able to join by phone, a dial-in number and conference ID are also available at the website.
