Michigan House Energy Policy Committee to investigate rising power bills
LANSING, Mich. —
The Michigan House Energy Policy Committee is expected to look for the reason of the rising electrical bills across the state on Tuesday.
Several reports from utilities customers of electrical bills doubling or tripling have prompted hearing, which will be held at 9 a.m. Tues. in Room 519 of the House Office Building, 124 N. Capitol Ave.
State Rep. Gary Glenn, R-Williams Township, said in a release, “We’re hearing about concerns from residents across Michigan. Many electricity bills are skyrocketing this winter – reportedly doubling or tripling in some case – and we need to find out why.”
Glenn cited the complaints as a reason to remove the cap on alternative electricity suppliers, which is currently at 10 percent of the state’s market.
Political Reporter Nick Minock interviewed Glenn about the meeting. The full interview is in the video above.
