Michigan’s Local Energy Providers Continue to Give Back
We’re always impressed with the commitment our local energy providers have to helping their communities. Take the Consumers Energy Annual Intern Challenge, for example. More than 130 Consumers Energy interns from more than 25 colleges volunteered their time to 27 nonprofit organizations around the state to make a difference. This is just another example of how local energy providers help strengthen the communities they serve—after all, those are the same communities in which they live, work, and play.
Michigan’s Energy Industry Full of Hometown Pride
Of course, Consumers Energy isn’t the only local provider that gives back. For example:
- Each year thousands of DTE Energy employees volunteer in their neighborhoods and serve various community organizations through the DTE Energy Care Corps.
- More than 600 of these employees will turn out for “DTE Cares Week” to help numerous local service organizations. Originally scheduled for September 8 – 12, this year’s volunteer events were postponed due to recent storms.
- The company also holds Customer Assistance Days to connect low-income families with important resources like case management solutions, energy-efficiency education, and utility payment assistance.
Last Year, we blogged about the different ways Michigan’s local energy providers take pride in their communities
. From service projects undertaken by employees to companies investing in the restoration and development of community spaces, our state’s energy providers aren’t just businesses, they are our friends, family, and neighbors. All the more reason to support local energy produced by Michiganders for Michiganders.
