Data Analysis and Regulatory Review

The Commission charge assigned to the Data and Regulatory Analysis Subcommittee is to examine and recommend a long-term data collection strategy including:  

  • Review Part 7 of the Commission's Billing rules on customer protections (R 460.130 - R 460.133).
  • Coordinate its work with ongoing shut-off and arrearage data collection under U-20757 and the data collection mandated by R 460.151.
  • Explore the inclusion of demographic information such as race, gender, and income; geographic information such as by zip code; extent to which low-income and senior households are receiving energy waste reduction and efficiency services; and energy burdens of customers.
  • Consider recommendations from the Commission's Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) initiative.
  • Consider resources including the NARUC Data Resolution of 2019, LIHEAP Direct Support program reporting, and the MI Power Grid Customer Education and Participation workgroup report on issues related to data access and privacy to ensure that any recommendations are consistent with Commission policy in this area.
