Customer Resource Fairs


Today in Michigan, more than 1.3 million people live below the federal poverty level. Our state's struggling economy, coupled with our unforgiving winters, means a greater need for energy assistance. We partner with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, the Michigan State Housing Development Authority and local energy assistance agencies to provide case management solutions, energy efficiency education and energy assistance to customers in need.

Our services include:

  • Help with applying for energy assistance (State Emergency Relief)
  • Tips to help you reduce your energy bills
  • Access to various human services agencies
