It’s easy to forget how much we rely on electricity; how it is now an essential part of our lives. We have become so accustomed to it that we take it for granted. But, reliable and affordable electricity is essential for our lives and well-being. It helps us to live comfortable and healthy lives.
This report provides readers with a better understanding of how Michigan’s electricity system works, that it gives readers a clear idea of how electricity is generated, transmitted and used in our state. With this understanding, we hope to help Michigan residents become better consumers, customers and more informed voters.
