Consumers Energy Fined over Half a Million Dollars
The Michigan Public Service Commission fined Consumers Energy $515,800 for billing violations in Michigan Thursday.
I've heard so many complaints about Consumer's billing practices over the last 2 years. According to Fox 17,
About 49,000 meters were estimated for three consecutive months, and over 12,000 customers had estimated bills for a year or more.
Some customers received estimated bills for hundreds, thousands and even tens of thousands of dollars.
The fine must be paid within 30 days. I hope we don't see this reflected in our next bill.
