The Michigan Public Service Commission will hold two town halls for customers affected by recent power outages.

Town halls are set for Monday morning in Jackson and Monday night in Dearborn (details below).

Those were the two hardest hits areas by storms earlier this month.

Many residents have complained about the $25 credit mandated by Michigan’s service quality rules.

Attorney General Dana Nessel has called on the utilities to automatically credit customers who suffer from outages and to increase the outage credit.

A Virtual town hall will be held Tuesday at 6 p.m. That meeting will be held here: https://www.michigan.gov/mpsc/commission/events/2023/03/21/virtual-town-hall---electric-outages.


12:00 p.m.: American 1 Credit Union Event Center, 128 W. Ganson St., Jackson, MI

5:30 p.m.: Fordson High School Auditorium, 13800 Ford Road, Dearborn, MI
