CARE Supports UPPCO Customer Utility Rate Reduction

Starting in July, Upper Peninsula Power CO. (UPPCO) customers will see reductions in their utility bills due to an order from the Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC).

John Liskey, counsel for the Citizens Against Rate Excess CARE, said:

“We are delighted with the Commission’s action. UPPCO customers have for too long been paying some of the highest electric rates in the nation.  This reduction, while small in comparison to the average total bill, is a step in the right direction.”
