"Michigan Proposal 3 Results: State Rejects Renewable Energy Proposal"

"Proposal 3, a [Michigan] state ballot initiative promoting renewable energy, fizzled out at the polls Tuesday. 36 percent of voters supported the measure, while 64 percent came out against it, according to the Detroit Free Press at 12:27 a.m Wednesday."

"Also known as the 25 by 2025 proposal, Prop 3 would have amended the Michigan constitution to mandate a new renewable energy standard for the state's energy utilities. It set a deadline of 2025 to require electric utilities to generate at least 25 percent of their annual retail sales of electricity from renewable energy sources, which include wind, solar, biomass and hydropower."
