PSC In Choice State Allows Utilities To Offer Value-Added Services
The Michigan PSC approved an updated version of Code of Conduct rules for all utilities and alternative electric suppliers
The PSC said in a news release that the updated rules, "allow utilities to offer 'value-added programs and services' to customers."
Under the rules, value-added programs and services means programs and services that are utility or energy related, including, but not limited to, home comfort and protection, appliance service, building energy performance, alternative energy options, or engineering and construction services. Value-added programs and services do not include energy optimization or energy waste reduction programs paid for by utility customers as part of the regulated rates.
The rules will be submitted to the Legislative Service Bureau and the Office of Regulatory Reinvention for their formal approvals.
