Law Judge Agrees with Cox, Demands $106 Million Refund for Consumers Energy Customers

From the Michigan News:

Attorney General Mike Cox today announced that barring appeals, Consumers Energy customers across Michigan can expect $106 million in refunds following a recommendation by an Administrative Law Judge with the Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC).

Law Judge James Rigas agreed with the Attorney General’s office and other parties that surcharges billed to customers during 2001 through 2003 were collected by Consumers Energy for the specific purpose of tearing down the former Big Rock Point nuclear power plant near Charlevoix. He further recommended that the excess money be refunded to customers.
