How Electric Rates are Set
Michigan Energy Rates
We work to provide reliable, safe and economical energy services and offer a variety of rates to serve your unique needs. The electric services we deliver are regulated by the Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC).
What Costs are Included in Rates
Generally speaking, rates are divided into three parts:
- Major investments that generate and deliver energy, including power plants and electric distribution (poles and wires). This includes upgrades to stay current with environmental regulations.
- Operating expenses, including fuel for power plants (such as oil and natural gas), the cost of electricity we purchase from the energy market and activities related to maintenance, repair, service and billing.
- Michigan energy programs that support areas such as energy efficiency and renewable energy.
