As it continues to explore ways to broaden public engagement in its regulatory processes, the Michigan Public Service Commission announced today it will hold a public hearing Aug. 22 in Detroit on DTE Electric Co.’s pending rate case.

MPSC Chair Dan Scripps, Commissioners Tremaine Phillips and Katherine Peretick, and MPSC Staff will hold the hearing Monday, Aug. 22, 6-8 p.m. at the Frank Hayden Community Room No. 236 at Wayne County Community College District’s downtown Detroit campus. Customers of DTE Electric and other members of the public are welcome to speak at the hearing, which will be held in-person only. The MPSC is opting for an in-person hearing to give residents a chance to speak directly to Commissioners about the utility’s application, filed in January, for approximately $388 million in additional revenues. All comments at the meeting will be filed in the case docket and be a matter of public record.

“The MPSC is looking at ways to increase public participation and outreach about energy and telecommunications issues critical to Michiganders’ lives,” Scripps said. “We look forward to hearing from DTE Electric customers on their thoughts and concerns.”

MPSC Staff will be on hand to provide educational materials about utility regulation, energy assistance and other information, including how to seek resolution to disputes with utilities about billing, service and other matters.
