Retail electric competition is currently capped at 10%. Michigan customers that were able to choose a competitive supplier before hitting the arbitrary 10% cap are estimated to have saved over $350 million. Michigan customers unable to switch are now paying the highest prices in the Midwest, having increased by over 20% since 2008.
Please consider taking a moment from your day to contact the Michigan House Energy and Technology committee members and tell them you want them to eliminate the cap on electric competition. They are currently reviewing the 2008 law that capped electric competition at 10%.
Tell them what this law means to you; if you think your rates are too high and the law picks winners and losers, let them know! Let them know by simply sending two emails, very easily done via the two links provided below. Your email letters will reach 12 key members of the committee.
In a follow-up post, I will send you a similar message where you will be able to reach the remaining 8 members of the committee.
The link provides a form email in this space to make it as easy on you as possible, please consider personalizing your message to whatever extent you can. It’s important, especially, for legislators to see company names and to see if you are one of their constituents or not. Please let them know that you are unhappy with paying the highest rates in the Midwest.
