    There is no need to open up Michigan's electric market to more competition, Sen. Mike Nofs, R-Battle Creek said.

    After weeks of reviewing the state's 2008 energy reform laws and hearing testimony for about 60 people, the chair of the Senate Energy and Technology Committee said raising the 10 percent cap on customer choice is not necessary.

    "I don't think there was a huge outcry (about raising the cap)," Nofs said. "I think the current law is working pretty good."

    Michigan's 2008 energy-reform law limits competition to 10 percent of the sales of the state's two largest utilities: Consumers Energy and Detroit Edison.

    When the law was enacted in October 2008, 3 percent of Consumers' customers were buying from alternative providers. Ten months later, that figure hit the 10 percent cap.

    Rest here

    Yessiree, keep sitting on that government maintained monopoly, Mikey.

    ...would be very apropos right about now.

    "Consumers Energy officials say increasing the 10 percent cap to allow more competition would lead to a price spike for remaining customers. The cap also gives the utility the certainty it needs to continue investing millions of dollars in Michigan, spokesman Dan Bishop said."

    Says the utility that will jack up my utility rates next spring to cover the deadbeats who won't pay their bills this winter.
