*Power Cost Adjustment (PCA) rate can vary month to month. A base amount (cost) for energy is in our rates, however if the actual cost to provide you with energy is higher or lower, that difference must be passed on. The major items that will affect the price of power is overall customer demand and the cost of fuel.

*Energy Optimization charge is a program that was mandated by the State of Michigan and is charged per kwh used. Those funds are used to provide programs, rebates and education that encourage energy efficiency among our customers.
