LANSING, Mich. – The public will have a chance on Monday, May 8, to comment about Consumers Energy Company’s plan to end a power purchasing agreement with Entergy Nuclear Palisades LLC as part of the decision to close the Palisades plant.

The Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC) has scheduled two information meetings at the Van Buren Conference Center, 490 S.
