A landfill located in Michigan will be the source of the natural gas supply.
Participation in the pilot program will be available for a period of up to 24 months from the effective date of the approved tariff. Customers will be able to terminate their participation in the program at any time.
The MPSC is an agency within the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs.
