Michigan’s Attorney General is working to make sure a rate increase from DTE is reasonable.
Dana Nessel is urging the Michigan Public Service Commission to significantly cut a rate increase request from DTE. In February, the Attorney General intervened in the company’s filed rate case as an advocate for the utility’s natural gas customers across the state.
The company requested a $195 million increase, which would represent a greater than 11% increase for residential customers. Nessel filed testimony back on June 3 and argued the requested increase is unreasonable. She says any increase must remain moderate.
