On February 25, 2002 in Case Number U-13232, the Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC) approved a permanent gas customer choice program for Michigan Gas Utilities (MGU) natural gas customers, effective June 1, 2002.
The gas customer choice program gives all customers the option to obtain natural gas from an alternative gas supplier of their choice. This means that you, as a residential or business customer have the ability to choose a new gas supplier. MGU will still continue to provide gas distribution service by delivering your gas to your home or business.
If you do not wish to switch to a new supplier your gas service will continue to be provided by MGU and the price of your gas supply will be regulated by the MPSC. If you wish to switch to a new supplier the price you pay for your gas supply will be the price the supplier offers and is not regulated by the MPSC.
If you choose to participate in the gas customer choice program you may return to the utility at any time. If you switch back to MGU after participating in the gas customer choice program you are required to remain an MGU sales customer for 12 months before you can choose a new supplier.
