On February 18, 2021, the Michigan Public Service Commission issued the 3rd order in the pandemic response docket U-20757. The Commission directed Staff to convene the Energy Affordability and Accessibility Collaborative in coordination with the Energy Waste Reduction and Low-Income Workgroup to address the Commission Staff's recommendations in the U-20757 Collaboration and Communication Process report on the Commission's ongoing COVID-19 response; affordable payment plans; affordable energy bills; data collection, transparency and analysis; review of rule-based protections; and communication and engagement. Staff is also directed to file an interim report to U-20757 on the progress made and any recommendations no later than December 17, 2021.
The third meeting will include presentations and discussions on the topics of Living Our Guiding Values, as well as Affordability and Energy Self Sufficiency Standards/Definitions. To continue discussions on guiding principles and values and setting work priorities, the Collaborative's work has been structured into four subcommittees: Definitions-Ad hoc; Assistance Program Simplification; Outreach & Education; and Data Analysis & Regulatory Review.
