- Excerpt from Electric Choice Spreads to Two New Utilities:

For the first time in the eleven year history of retail electric competition in Michigan (“choice”), electric customers in the Indiana Michigan Power Company (I&M) and the Upper Peninsula Power Company (UPPCo) service territories are participating in Michigan’s electric choice program. Alternative Energy Suppliers (AES) are now serving 120 customers in the I&M service territory and 4 customers in the UPPCo service territory. There are 5,672 choice customers in the Detroit Edison service territory and 1,064 choice customers in the Consumers Energy service territory. Michigan has 26 licensed AES companies. As of the end of 2012, there were approximately 10,450 customers statewide “in the queue” to participate in the choice program when and if space opens. There is currently a 10 percent cap (10 percent of an electric utility’s average weather adjusted retail sales) on participation.
