Michigan Utility:

Feb 2, 2015

If the Michigan Public Service Commission approves, electric rates could drop by 4 percent for industrial and business customers, including manufacturers, hospitals, malls, steel companies and large office buildings, according to Gerry Anderson, chairman and CEO of DTE, Michigan’s electric utility. Electric rates could also drop by 1 percent for smaller businesses, retail stores, restaurants and small offices.

But residential customers could pay 3.2 percent MORE for THEIR electricity.

In other words, DTE wants to give to business and commercial users and take from workers and retirees!
