Newsworthy Notes

In 2011, Lakeshore Energy founded the Michigan Gas Customer Choice Association (MGCCA) along with end-use customers receiving natural gas via a Gas Customer Choice Program in the State of Michigan. The MGCCA was formed to protect the interests of this previously unrepresented customer class in regulatory proceedings.


In its latest efforts, the MGCCA:

  • Intervened in rate cases and regulatory filings
  • Fought to block an increase of $14 million in utility-related charges from being billed to consumers
  • Proposed an $8 million reduction in utility-related charges billed to customers
