As of 4:30PM on Sunday, approximately 6,000 Consumers Energy customers remained without service from the Christmas Eve storm.

Now, nearly all customers have had power restored. If you are still without power, Consumers Energy is asking you to contact them.

Consumers Energy is wrapping up storm restoration in northern Michigan while it prepares for today’s weather. Current forecasts call for freezing rain in West Michigan. Ice accumulations put weight on power lines and can cause outages. High winds, with gusts as high as 55 to 60 mph, are also expected.

As we prepare for another round of severe weather, Consumers Energy is asking customers who are still without power to call 1-800-477-5050 or report it online to verify their outage. Even if customers have reported the outage earlier, the verification is a helpful planning tool for crews focusing on remaining outages.
