Michigan Electric Reliability Project to Include Focus on Outages

Michigan's Institute for Energy Innovation has had an ongoing Electric Reliability Project since early this year. The overall focus is on enhancing distribution reliability and reducing the number and duration of electric outages. As if on cue to demonstrate the importance of enhancing the reliability of the electric grid, November storms and wind knocked out power to 678,000 Michigan customers, closing businesses, schools and government.

Anyone can participate - not just those who lost power. Meanwhile the MPSC has a press release stating that customers who lost power may be entitled to a $25 credit.
