Consumers Energy Crews Travel East, Ready to Help as Blizzard Approaches

When a storm is coming, American energy providers stick together. We’re currently mobilizing equipment and more than 50 employees to assist New York and New England as severe winter storm, Juno, hits the East Coast.

Consumers Energy employees left Dundee, Mich. this morning to work east including:

  • Utility crews
  • Technicians
  • Mechanics
  • Supervisors

Another 100 contractors are being released from work on our electric system to help restore power. With fair weather in Michigan, this is a perfect opportunity to help out-of-state crews manage storm damage.

Blizzard conditions are forecasted for parts of New York and New England, beginning at noon today, with the potential for hurricane-force winds and up to two feet of snow. Depending on the storm damage, our crews could work on the East Coast for a week or more.

We know the importance of supporting other energy providers, as they have traveled to help our own restoration efforts during Michigan severe weather. Consumers Energy not only cares for the communities where we live and serve, but we also care for surrounding communities in times of need.
