Big changes could be coming to your electric bill under a plan being debated in the state senate.

Lawmakers have been working to overhaul the state's energy policy for two years and hope to vote on it during the "lame-duck session."

Utilities including Consumers Energy and DTE would have to get 15-percent of their electricity from renewable sources, instead of the current 10-percent. 

Several large companies oppose the plan, because it would make it harder for them to buy electricity from alternative suppliers.

We'll let you know when a vote happens.
