Schuette Fights Excessive Electric Rates for U.P. Residents

Attorney General Bill Schuette announced he has intervened before the Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC) in the requests of two companies serving the Upper Peninsula to increase utility rates. Wisconsin Public Service Corporation and Northern States Power Company have filed requests to increase rates from 8% to 28% per month, respectively. The companies serve more than 9,000 residents each.

 "Michigan families have enough rising costs to worry about this winter without being concerned about their electric company increasing their rates by up to 28%," said Schuette.  "I am intervening to ask the MPSC to closely examine these requests."

Attorney General Schuette hopes to assist U.P. customers, adding to the nearly $1.3 billion his special litigation unit has saved utility taxpayers since his taking office in 2011.
