Consumers Energy Looks to Raise Rates Nearly $100/year

If you're a Consumers Energy customer, you may want to start budgeting a little more for your monthly bill. Consumers wants to raise its residential electric rates by $7.75 per month by the end of the year. They say the increase is partly because of investments to maintain and improve services. The Michigan Public Service Commission has less than a year to approve, deny or change the increase.
