MARQUETTE, MI – 10/28/2014 – The Michigan Public Service Commission hosted a panel discussion and question & answer session on the Upper Peninsula’s energy future today in Marquette.

The session, held in conjunction with the U.P. Energy Summit at Northern Michigan University, focused on a proposal forcing U.P. utility customers to pay for the majority of about $100 million in additional annual costs to keep Marquette’s Presque Isle Power Plant operational.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission is considering accepting the Midcontinent Independent System Operator’s plan that shifts cost division between the U.P. and Wisconsin from a previously devised 6-8 percent in Upper Michigan to 99.5 percent.
