This page gives a brief description of selected Michigan Public Service Commission Orders about Electric Utility Customer Choice (formerly called Electric Utility Restructuring), with links to the orders and press releases.

This page indexes orders about alternative electric suppliers. In Michigan, electricity suppliers must receive MPSC approval, before they can begin supplying customers with electric generation services. Orders indexed here involve applications for MPSC approval, and also the contracts between customers and their electricity suppliers.

In addition, there are two other pages about related Commission orders.  One indexes orders about customer choice (formerly known as restructuring), which is the process of introducing competition into the electric utility industry. The other indexes orders about the Consumers Energy Company Rate DA Program, a 134.3 MW direct access program started in November, 1996. Under the Rate DA program, approximately 20 large Consumers Energy customers have become eligible to obtain electric power from independent electricity suppliers. The participating suppliers utilize the transmission and distribution facilities owned and operated by Consumers Energy to deliver electric energy and capacity to customers.
