A new coalition wants the state to get 10 percent of its electricity from renewable sources by 2015.
The Detroit News and The Macomb Daily of Mount Clemens report the group, called MI Energy Future, wants that energy to come from sources like wind, sunlight, flowing water and landfill gases.
Michigan now gets about 3.7 percent of its electricity from renewable sources, such as hydroelectric generation and landfill gases.
Andrew Such is the group's president. He says the group wants to expand the state's energy technology industry, and that would help create jobs and reduce dependence on coal and uranium from other states.
