The Michigan Public Service Commission fined Consumers Energy $515,800 for billing violations in Michigan Thursday.

I've heard so many complaints about Consumer's billing practices over the last 2 years.  According to Fox 17, 

About 49,000 meters were estimated for three consecutive months, and over 12,000 customers had estimated bills for a year or more.

Some customers received estimated bills for hundreds, thousands and even tens of thousands of dollars.

The fine must be paid within 30 days.  I hope we don't see this reflected in our next bill.
