May 15, 2013 - The Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC) today issued a new consumer tips sheet for first time renters and homeowners.


"Becoming a first time renter or homeowner brings with it utility-related responsibilities," said MPSC Chairman John D. Quackenbush.  "The consumer tips sheet issued today provides useful advice on how to establish utility service before the move-in date, how to handle establishing service when living with multiple tenants, and how to avoid late payment charges and shut-off notices."


The new consumer tips sheet also provides energy saving tips.


The MPSC is an agency within the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs.
