Need A Hand Paying Your Energy Bill?


We care about our neighbors and want them to know help is available.

  • If you are having trouble paying your bill, dial 2-1-1 -- a free service that connects people with available resources in their community.
  • We also have a variety of programs and payment arrangements that are available by calling 800-477-5050 or by visiting ConsumersEnergy.com/assistance.
  • State Emergency Relief (SER) funds are available to provide immediate help for income qualified households who have a past due energy bill or shut-off notice. The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) has relaxed requirements for SER. The relaxed requirements allow for faster processing of emergency requests and easier access to benefits. Please visit Michigan.gov/mibridges to apply.
  • Our Budget Plan also provides a way for customers to pay a consistent monthly bill year-round.
