August Power Outages Feedback for Department of Attorney General

  • Attorney General Nessel wants to collect input from the public on recent power outages to better inform her consumer advocacy before the Michigan Public Service Commission.

    Recently, she called on the two largest utility companies in the state to prioritize customers who dealt with extended power outages through automatic bill credits instead of an application process and the creation of a fund to assist displaced customers during significant power outages.

    You can learn more about those efforts in this Aug. 16 press release.
