MPSC Reports on the Status of Electric Competition in Michigan

As of December 2013, Consumers Energy had just over 1,000 customers participating in the electric choice program and DTE Electric Company had just under 5,500 choice customers participating.  The electric choice programs for both companies were fully subscribed at the 10 percent cap throughout the year. As of December 2013, Upper Peninsula Power Company had 39 customers participating in the electric choice program and Indiana Michigan Power Company had zero customers participating. During 2013 customers began taking choice service in the Wisconsin Electric Power Company and Wisconsin Public Service Corporation territories. As of December 2013, Wisconsin Electric Power Company had over 50 customers participating in the electric choice program and Wisconsin Public Service Corporation had 13 customers participating. Upper Peninsula Power Company and Wisconsin Electric Power Company were fully subscribed at year end 2013.

To date, Michigan remains one of 16 jurisdictions that had full or limited restructuring of the competitive electric market.  Benchmark information comparing Michigan’s electric retail rates versus the 16 restructured jurisdictions, 10 largest states, midwest states and the national average can be found in Section I (D) of this report.

In 2013, the Commission issued multiple orders that adhere to the established framework for Michigan’s electric customer choice programs and support the provisions of Public Act 141 of 2000 and Public Acts 286 and 295 of 2008.
