Huh! Consumers Energy keeps refusing to tell people who email or call them that they CAN keep their old meter (even though Consumers said in a court case it would allow people to keep them). Well, here WTVB says that those who do not want the upgraded meters can opt out and keep their old meter. Hmm. So Consumers is willing to tell them but not its own customers?
See our lengthy page on the Consumers Energy opt-out and your right to keep your analog (and how to make sure you do) on our website.
