Power Been Out For A While? Find Out How Consumers Energy Wants To Help
How long has it been for you and your family?
As the hours go by, things begin to get tight and that feeling of literal powerlessness closes in.
How long has it been?
Should we call again?
Are they even working on it?
Last weeks storms knocked the power out for a fair amount of Michiganders.
Some are still without.
Michigan AG Dana Nessel had some strong and very pointed words for our friends at Consumers Energy.
While saluting the crews and "those who have worked tirelessly the last several days on behalf of the communities they serve," she also demanded the utility companies work hard to restore trust with their customers.
How about we start here?
If your power has been out for a substantially long period of time, Consumers Energy is giving you an opportunity to apply for an "outage credit".
If you meet any of the following criteria, you may qualify for an electric outage credit:
- Service interrupted for more than five days (120 hours) during catastrophic conditions (10 percent or more of Consumers Energy customers affected).
- Service interrupted for more than 16 hours during normal conditions.
- Service interrupted more than seven times in a 12-month period.
You can read more on the story from our broadcast partners at WILX News 10.
