After contacting Consumers Energy to see if there is a special rate for senior citizens; Customer Service Rep. Brigitte Steelman responded:

...."Yes, we do have a senior rate for electricity for any customer who is over 65 years old.  All the customer needs to do is contact us and let us know they are over 65 years old."

If you are 65 years old or more, call the phone number on your bill. 

Thank you to the Country Acres resident that brought this to our attention.  Senior citizens deserve all the breaks they can get!
