Press Release: New Report Finds That Michigan Is One of the Worst States for Power Outages, Energy Affordability and More

Shortly after hundreds of thousands of Michigan utility customers lost power on Dec. 11 in an event that is the latest sign of our deteriorating electric grid, the residential ratepayer advocacy group the Citizens Utility Board (CUB) of Michigan is releasing the 2021 edition of its Utility Performance Report, a scorecard that compares Michigan utilities to peers nationwide. The report finds that Michigan is for the most part doing poorly on critical metrics like electric reliability and the level of environmental impacts from the energy sector. Despite these shortcomings, however, Michigan residents pay some of the highest rates in the country.

“Unreliable and expensive energy is a big problem that makes life more difficult for Michiganders, and also harms our state’s economy,” CUB of Michigan President-Elect Keith Cooley said. “This report lays out the scope of the problem. Our regulators and representatives should take notice and make reforms.”
