MPSC Plans To Investigate 2013 Ice Storm Outage Response

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - The Michigan Public Service Commission is looking into the ice storm that hit in December 2013.

Lawmakers are expected to vote 'yes' Wednesday afternoon on a proposal to investigate how well utility companies responded.

The pre-Christmas ice storm knocked out power to more than 660,000 customers across the state.

Regulators want to make sure Michigan's two largest utility companies responded accordingly.

Consumers Energy and DTE Energy are regulated by the commission who told them changes needed to be made after severe outages in 2009.

The commission is meeting Wednesday afternoon to vote on the proposal.
