Power belongs to the people.

Heading (4).png

Wealthy corporate utilities like DTE and Consumers Energy have captured our legislative and regulatory processes, allowing them to pocket billions of dollars in profits while saddling our communities with polluted air and unaffordable energy.

Michigan residents pay some of the highest electric bills in the nation and suffer some of the worst service. These costs are disproportionately borne by Environmental Justice communities - Black, Brown, Indigenous and poor white communities that have seen the worst effects of pollution and climate change.

 

Quick Facts: 

Michigan’s energy bills are the 12th most expensive in the entire country.

In 2022, the profit dividends DTE Energy paid out to shareholders was 52x what it would cost to prevent all shutoffs.

93% of legislators have taken DTE Energy money during their careers, including Gretchen Whitmer & Mayor Duggan
