Michigan back of bill

Overview

Retail rates for energy services are authorized and regulated by the Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC). Rate information is published and sent with bills once a year. You’ll find a sample bill on our website to help you read and verify your bill. Contact us for:

  • Pricing information to verify the accuracy of your bill.
  • Billing and payment options.
  • Assistance with evaluating your energy use and conservation efforts.

Your payment is considered late if it is not received by the payment due date. When this happens, a late payment charge of 1.5% of the unpaid balance will be added to the next bill. If you have a question or concern about your bill, contact us before your energy bill is due.

Billing and payment options

We offer several convenient options for billing and payment, including My Account, Automatic Payment and Budget Billing. To pay with a credit or debit card, call 888-823-2943 or visit our website.

Energy assistance

You may be eligible to receive funds to help pay your electric heating bill. Contact your county social service agency for information. When difficult circumstances prevent you from paying your bill in full, call us at 800-842-4565 to make a payment arrangement.
