What is energy choice?

An easy way to understand energy choice is to take a look at your natural gas bill. You’ll see that it is made up of two main parts: distribution charges and supply, or cost of gas, charges. The distribution of your natural gas through pipelines is a service is provided by your local utility company. However, the supply portion of your bill, usually shown as the price per Mcf of Ccf, is the part you have control over and is open to competition by alternative gas suppliers.

What is the Michigan Public Service Commission?

Since it’s inception in the early 1900s, the Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC) has helped Michigan customers understand their energy use. Today, MPSC plays a role in energy choice by facilitating competitive supplier choices, certifying natural gas suppliers to ensure they have met strict requirements for doing business in Michigan, and hosting information on their Gas Customer Choice.
