MPSC Reports on the Status of Electric Competition in Michigan

As of December 2014, Consumers Energy (Consumers) had over 1,000 customers participating in the electric choice program and DTE Electric Company (DTE) had just under 5,300 choice customers participating. Also, Upper Peninsula Power Company (UPPCo) had 60 customers participating in the electric choice program, Wisconsin Electric Power Company (WEPCo) had 51 customers participating in the electric choice program and Wisconsin Public Service Corporation (WPSC) had 13 customers participating. Indiana Michigan Power Company (I&M) had zero customers participating. During 2014 one cooperative electric utility customer began participating in choice in the Cloverland Electric Cooperative (Cloverland) territory. The electric choice programs for Consumers, DTE, UPPCo, and WEPCo were fully subscribed at the 10 percent cap throughout the year and there continues to be approximately11,000 queued customers statewide.

To date, Michigan remains one of 19 jurisdictions that had full or limited restructuring of the competitive electric market.  Benchmark information comparing Michigan’s electric retail rates versus the 19 restructured jurisdictions, 10 largest states, midwest states and the national average can be found in Section I (D) of this report.

In 2014, 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.
