After receiving a letter from DTE threatening to cut his electrical power…
DTE customer Tom Mitchell has been granted a hearing by the MPSC based on his hand-written letter which he informed them that due to a common medical condition (Atrial fibrillation: a condition occurring when the upper chambers of your heart receive irregular electrical signals) he could not live without power or with a smart meter on his home.
MPSC contacted Tom by phone assuring him that his power would not be cut and that he is scheduled for a hearing on the matter.
Tom received a call from DTE telling him, in so many words, to drop his complaint because no one has ever won a case based on his argument.
Tom dismissed DTE’s request and pre-hearing arguments are scheduled for:
Tuesday October 31, 2017
