Michigan Energy Consumption per Real Dollar of GDP (2005)energy_consumption_per_real_dollar_of_gdp_michigannumberWhy it Matters: Energy consumption per real dollar of GDP (Gross Domestic Product) is a ratio that indicates the amount of energy a state or country uses to support all of its economic activities. This measure serves as a useful baseline for predicting energy consumption when the economy grows, and therefore for measuring energy efficiency year-over-year. However, it is important to note that the biggest impact to this measure is the makeup of the GDP. For instance, GDP derived from writing a computer program would have much lower energy input than GDP derived from making steel, and therefore lower numbers should not be assumed to be a result of greater efficiency unless economic factors are first taken into account.

Michigan Residential Energy Pricingresidential_energy_pricing_michigannumberWhy it Matters: Michigan's energy prices are near the national average. However, when comparing our prices to other states, it is most appropriate to compare ourselves to similar states with regard to climate and regulatory standards, such as Minnesota and Wisconsin. Many factors play into pricing, including customer base, demand, transmission and transportation costs, capital investment, environmental compliance costs, historical subsidies, and participation in electric choice.

Electrical Transmission Line Outageselectrical_transmission_line_outagesnumberWhy it Matters: Electric transmission delivers electric power to wholesale customers (e.g., Consumer Energy, Detroit Edison) through the interconnected bulk electric system. Many times, a single line outage on the transmission system does not result in power outages for customers as multiple paths are available through the interconnected grid. Lower levels of transmission line outages helps to ensure high levels of electricity reliability for retail customers. High levels of electricity reliability provide for the safety and security of residents, and provides a necessary service for businesses who may wish to locate or expand in Michigan.

State Park Popularity - Annual Park Visits per Capitastate_park_popularity_annual_park_visits_per_capitanumberWhy it Matters: The more than a hundred parks and recreation areas in Michigan's state park system offer residents and visitors the opportunity to experience scenic forests, trails, lakes and historic sites. Michigan is a prime destination for camping, fishing, boating, hiking, bicycling and a host of other outdoor activities. The number of annual visits per resident to state parks is the total number of state park visits divided by the population in Michigan.

Percentage of Adults Reporting Participation in Fee-based Recreation Activitypercentage_of_adults_reporting_participation_in_fee_based_recreation_activitypercentWhy it Matters: Outdoor recreation and natural resource conservation in Michigan are predominantly funded through fees for licensed outdoor recreation and federal excise taxes on hunting and fishing equipment. These dollars fund outdoor recreation opportunities for everyone. It is important to increase participation in licensed activities to provide high quality outdoor recreation opportunities.

Private Investment in Brownfieldsprivate_investment_in_brownfieldsmoneyWhy it Matters: Brownfield programs promote community revitalization, accelerate private investment and contribute to Michigan's reinvention, particularly in many of our core urban areas. The data presented represent the amount of private investment committed by quarter for projects receiving brownfield redevelopment support, including the Community Revitalization Program (CRP), Brownfield Tax Increment Financing and MDEQ Brownfield Program awards. Private investment includes funds used for rehabilitation, renovation, new construction, site improvements, machinery, equipment and fixtures, acquisition costs, and associated development costs.

Counties Where Residents Have Convenient Access to Recyclingcounties_where_residents_have_convenient_access_to_recyclingnumberWhy it Matters: To expand waste utilization, Michigan will work to ensure that all residents have convenient access to recycling. Recycling enables the use of waste as a resource. For a county to have convenient access to recycling, each community should have at least one drop-off location per 10,000 people, and have a curbside recycling program for communities with more than 10,000 people.

Percentage of Significantly Harmful Aquatic Invasive Species for which Control Measures are in Placepercentage_of_significantly_harmful_aquatic_invasive_species_for_which_control_measures_are_in_placepercentWhy it Matters: Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) are non-native species whose introduction may cause economic or environmental harm. While not all non-native species are destructive, managing the impact of harmful species is important to maintain Michigan's natural resources, economy, recreational areas and protect public health. AIS enter our waters in various ways, including from ballast water discharges of ocean-going ships, or from intentional or accidental releases of species into waterways. Known AIS established in Michigan waters with significant impact include round goby, zebra mussels, phragmites and the sea lamprey.
