Look For Some Money Back On Your Utility Bill

LANSING (WWJ) – It may sound too good to be true, but utility customers in Michigan will actually get some money back on their bills.

The Public Service Commission has ruled that DTE Energy and Consumers Energy will have to refund money collected to finance a program to provide heat and lights for poor families.

The PSC said DTE must return nearly $31 million to customers after charging a small amount each month to maintain the special fund. The Consumers Energy Company electric division must refund $17.5 million and Consumers Energy Company gas division must refund $7.9 million.

A spokesperson for DTE said they yet to figure out how the much the refund will amount to for each customer, but a credit will appear on bills over the next few months.
