Consumers Energy is putting the electric vehicle transformation into high gear with a major new program to help businesses statewide transition to carbon-free EVs.
Consumers Energy’s new PowerMIFleet program will focus on Michigan businesses, offering expertise and $3 million in rebates for charging locations throughout the state.
Through PowerMIFleet, Consumers Energy will provide expertise and consultation services to Michigan businesses, governments, and school systems looking to electrify their vehicle fleets and charge overnight through cost-saving use rates. Consumers Energy is launching PowerMIFleet to build on its existing electric vehicle program, PowerMIDrive, which makes EV cost savings simple by providing time of use rates for EV drivers, and over 800 rebates for home, business, and public charging stations in the last two years.

Through all of Consumers Energy’s vehicle programs, it plans to help power 200 fast charging locations – and over 2,000 chargers at homes and businesses – over the next three years in Michigan.
Those vehicles will be powered by an electric grid that is moving toward being carbon neutral. Consumers Energy’s Clean Energy Plan calls for eliminating coal, eliminating energy waste, and adding more renewable energy sources.
Consumers Energy is the principal subsidiary of CMS Energy, providing natural gas and/or electricity to 6.8 million of the state’s 10 million residents in all 68 Lower Peninsula counties.
