Warner partner discusses natural gas production with Grand Rapids Business Journal

In an interview with The Grand Rapids Business Journal, Warner Norcross partner Steve Kohl discussed the governmental, economic and technology forces at work spurring the increased production of natural gas in Michigan. He told the publication that “the EPA train wreck” of regulations expected to come into effect in the next few years could force coal-fired power plants to close or spend significant dollars to meet new federal guidelines. Kohl notes that a key issue for those utilities is deciding what makes better sense: Complying with the new guidelines or switching to an alternative technology, such as natural gas.
