Electricity customers of Consumers Energy Co. in Michigan will see electric rates decline slightly after the Michigan Public Service Commission on Thursday approved an adjustment to rates approved last November.
A service commission spokesman said an “oversight” in the November rate decision failed to fully account for disposal of spent nuclear fuel from before 1983, causing a $4 million error.
The average residential customer's monthly bill still will decline by 3 cents, however, a spokesman said.
