New Bill Could Eliminate Electric Companies Competition Rates

(WLNS) – A new survey shows voters could pull the plug on a bill that would wipe-out the competition for electric companies.

Currently under Michigan law, companies like Consumers and DTE must give up to 10 percent of the market to competing companies. A bill being discussed would eliminate the 10 percent altogether.

However, an Epic MRA survey found 71 percent of voters are against the bill and want to see the competition continue. The public cannot vote on this bill.

The survey also found if a lawmaker approved it, 45 percent of voters will be less likely to vote for that lawmaker in the next election.
