E-M:/ 1st Public Service Commission FORUM: Thursday night, 6 PM, Northwestern Activities Center- DETROIT

For anyone who pays light or heating bills to regulated utilities (Consumers Energy, DTE, WE Energies(UP)) the Michigan Public Service Commission which oversees these utilities is inviting you to come talk with them about your concerns, opportunities, etc.  With the recent passage of energy legislation that gives the Public Service Commission new authority and requirements with regard to  energy efficiency, renewable energy and requirements for integrated resource plans this is an important time to give input or raise questions about how they intend to tackle these issues.  AW



MPSC Schedules Seven Consumer Forums around the State in October Aug 26, 2008

August 26, 2008


      The Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC) today announced that it

will host a series of consumer forums around Michigan in October.

The forums are designed to give consumers the latest information on electric

and natural gas rates for the winter and the status of local and long

distance telephone service.


      "As winter approaches, my colleagues and I believe it is important for

Michigan utility customers to prepare for winter heating bills,"

said MPSC Chairman Orjiakor Isiogu.  "We want customers to be aware of

conservation measures they can take and assistance programs that are

available to them.  We welcome the opportunity to meet customers to discuss

these issues and hear their comments on other utility matters that concern



      One of the MPSC's three Commissioners - Chairman Isiogu, Commissioner

Monica Martinez, or Commissioner Steven A. Transeth - will be available at

each forum to discuss these issues, explain how the Commission makes

decisions, and listen to questions and comments regarding utility service.


      An American Sign Language interpreter will be available at the Detroit

forum for those in attendance who are deaf or hard of hearing.
