Consumers Energy is helping Michigan residents with energy bills

Consumers Energy Commits $12 Million to Help Michigan Customers Affected by COVID-19 Pandemic

Consumers Energy is providing $12 million to help Michigan residents and small businesses with energy bills, making an unprecedented commitment to helping customers and communities the COVID-19 pandemic has affected.

Consumers Energy has set a goal to help about 25,000 households and 1,000 small businesses with this new assistance. The funding will go directly to customers in need and to Michigan nonprofit organizations.

The best way for people to get help is to call 2-1-1, a free service that connects people with nonprofit agencies in their communities, including the new financial help that Consumers Energy is announcing. If a Consumers Energy customer is struggling to pay a bill, they also can call 800-477-5050.

Heading into winter, Consumers Energy also is working to keep energy costs low for customers. Customers should pay 20% less next year compared to a decade ago, or less than $2.30 a day, for natural gas.
