Consumers Energy

Since Wednesday morning, more than 231,000 customers have lost electric service. As of 11:30 a.m. today, nearly 148,000 customers remain without power.

❄ BATTLING MOTHER NATURE: A storm lasting several days has made it extremely challenging for our crews to safely and quickly assess estimated restoration times (ETRs) and repair our system. Essentially, each round of weather has reset our ETRs back.

🚧 PRIORITIZING SAFETY: Our first priority will always be to ensure public and employee safety. Once areas with downed wires and other hazards are secure, we are then able to generate a more refined ETR.

🕒 STATEWIDE RESTORATION TIME: We are working to get the majority of customers restored by end-of-day Sunday with the hardest hit areas extending to end-of-day Monday. Refined ETRs will be available throughout the weekend as we make progress alongside our out-of-state mutual assistance crews.

To our neighbors who have made alternative arrangements and have continually supported our crews: Thank you and we are sorry. We are incredibly sorry for the inconvenience this event has caused. We ensure that our team has been working around the clock, battling the elements, to restore power as quickly as possible.

🤝 COMING TOGETHER: At this time, we ask that customers with power extend a hand to those without power – especially the elderly and those with young children. Customers can also dial 2-1-1 for assistance or to find a warming shelter near them.

02/08/2019

Please call 911 for all emergencies and (989)831-3500 to report downed trees and powerlines and other non emergency issues.
As always stay away from the downed trees and powerlines for your safety. We appreciate your patience as the Road Commission, Local Fire Departments, and Utility crews work to restore our roadways and power.
