UPPCO is regulated by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (“FERC”) and the Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC).

Upper Peninsula Power Company (UPPCO) is requesting Michigan Public Service Commission approval of the Company’s latest regulatory filing. This multifaceted filing was submitted on September 21, 2018. The filing, if approved, returns the full benefit of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (TCJA) to customers, recovers investments being made in the UPPCO Smart Energy™ advanced metering solution, resets the Power Supply Cost Recovery factor to reflect current market conditions, eliminates the $2.25 fee that is currently assessed whenever a residential or small commercial customer utilizes a credit/debit card to pay their bill and adjusts the rates being charged to all customer classes to accurately reflect the true cost of service. The filing includes an updated cost-of-service study/rate-design and presents a plan that provides safe, reliable electric service to the Company’s customers.

The MPSC has 10 months to review UPPCO’s proposal and issue its Order in the case. An Order is expected in July 2019. Any adjustments to customers’ rates resulting from the Commission’s Order would go into effect after the Order has been issued.
