Natural Gas: The Choice is Yours


In Michigan, you have the choice of your natural gas supplier. Confirm your natural gas provider by reviewing your bill:
  • If your bill shows a “Gas Cost Recovery” charge, we are your current natural gas supplier.
  • If your bill shows a “Supplier Charge”, you have chosen to receive your natural gas from an Alternative Gas Supplier.
Regardless of who supplies your gas, we read the meter and process your bills, maintain and repair gas lines and respond to emergencies.

The Benefits of Being a Consumers Energy Customer


  • Our natural gas prices are the lowest they’ve been in a decade.
  • We charge you only what we pay for natural gas and don't make any profit from the sale of the gas.
  • We buy most of the natural gas that you will need for the upcoming winter during the summer. This is because prices are generally lower. We then store it until you need it.

Switch Natural Gas Suppliers


Review your options and consider your choices:
  • Visit the Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC) website for a list of suppliers.
  • Compare your rate.
  • Choose a supplier and contact them to begin service.
  • You can switch from your current provider to another natural gas provider once during each 12-month period (from April to March) without being charged a fee. After that, if you choose another provider, you’ll be charged a $10 fee each time you switch.
  • PLEASE NOTE: Consumers Energy is not associated or affiliated with Alternative Gas Suppliers, and we do not recommend or endorse any of their products. If you purchase your gas supply from an alternative gas supplier, the price you pay will not be regulated by the MPSC.

How It Works:
  • We deliver the supplier’s natural gas to you.
  • You will continue to receive a bill from Consumers Energy to cover the delivery charges. This is reflected on your bill as, “Supplier Charge”.
  • We’ll continue to maintain and repair gas lines and respond to emergencies.

Return to Consumers Energy


You always have the option of returning to Consumers Energy. Here's how to get started:
  • Contact your current supplier, let them know you want to return to Consumers Energy and ask what it involves (may be subject to fees).
  • When you purchase natural gas from us, your bill will with have a line item called “Gas Cost Recovery”. Review natural gas historical rates.
