About this grant

With many newspapers and other news outlets reducing their science and energy reporting, the public needs educational information on the changes taking place in the energy system. With prior Mott support, Fresh Energy, a Minnesota-based nonprofit and publisher of "Midwest Energy News", successfully expanded its journalistic coverage of renewable energy and energy efficiency stories in Michigan. With continued support, the grantee will generate a minimum of four pieces of original Michigan-focused reporting every month with the goal of maintaining Michigan’s ranking as one of its top four states for readership.
