Electricity

Michigan's electric system is comprised of generating plants, transmission lines, and distribution facilities. The MPSC is responsible for electric utility regulation for generation and distribution functions in the state of Michigan for eight privately owned electric utilities. The MPSC is to ensure they have adequate supply of electric energy to serve Michigan’s homes and businesses in each service territory when demand is highest and approves the rates and conditions for service, including metering and billing, to residential, commercial, and industrial customers.
