There are lots of ways to make electricity. Coal. Natural gas. Wind. Water. Solar. Even garbage. We’ve been using these fuels and others at Consumers Energy to power Michigan homes and businesses.
Businesses plug in to our grid too. They need electricity to build cars and trucks, to farm, care for patients and run schools. We all rely on electricity a lot. Most people don’t think about it much though—until you don’t have it. (Like when your phone needs charging and you can’t find an outlet.)
