Consumers Energy is asking to eliminate its authorized renewable energy surcharge beginning in July 2014. The residential charge under PA 295, was initially pegged at $2.50/month, then lowered twice to its current $0.52/month charge. Meanwhile DTE Energy has asked the Michigan Public Service Commission to lower its monthly residential renewable energy surcharge from $3/month to $0.43/ month. Commercial and industrial surcharge reductions are also being requested by both utilities.
