My Energy Value
What Consumers Energy does for you
For just a few dollars a day, electricity lights your way and powers your day, while natural gas helps warm your nights and cook your meals.
The average daily cost for electricity or natural gas is about $3 a day over the course of a year for residential customers. That’s less than the daily cost of cable TV, a combo meal or a specialty coffee! And we deliver 24/7.
How Consumers Energy spends your energy dollars
The company spends a significant amount on maintaining, upgrading and expanding its electricity and natural gas distribution systems.
Each year, we review potential growth and past performance and plan infrastructure improvements and line-clearing activities to maximize system-wide reliability.
All of this helps ensure we provide Michigan communities with reliable energy in a safe manner at affordable prices 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
What Consumers Energy does for Michigan
We plan to invest more than $7 billion in Michigan by 2017 with our Growing Forward strategy. As one of the state’s largest investors, our substantial investments will create jobs, strengthen Michigan communities and help boost the state’s economy.
And, as one of Michigan’s largest landowners and taxpayers ($195 million annually in local and state taxes), we have a significant impact on the state’s economy. Plus, our 7,500 employees and their families are woven into the fabric of your community.
