In October 2000 legislation was passed by the Michigan Public Service Commission (PSC) to allow the unbundling of services (Deregulation) that allow residential and commercial Natural Gas customers to have a “Choice” of their own supplier. In 2009 there were four natural gas utilities, listed above, participating in the program.
Your natural gas bill is made up of four parts;
1) Gas Commodity Charge: Price of gas paid to Utility or AGS (Alternative Gas Supplier). Price and cost of gas based on quantity used obtained from your home meter.
2) Delivery Charge: Based on amount of gas used and regulated by MPSC
3) Customer Charge: Fixed monthly charge and regulated by MPSC
4) Sales Tax: Currently 4% for residential customers and 6% for business customers.
Your utility will still deliver your gas as always for the same fee, but the cost of your natural gas itself is now up to you.
