Study launched on response to Christmas ice storm

LANSING, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The Michigan Public Service Commission has launched an investigation into the responses of local energy companies to recent storm damage in West Michigan.

An ice storm right before Christmas knocked out power to more than 300,000 Consumers Energy customers, and some did not get their power restored until a full week after the storm.

The commission is looking at the utilities response to the storm to see if changes can be made to prevent future outages and to restore power in a more timely manner.
