The increase would cost a household - on average - about five dollars extra per month.

Dan Bishop, Director of Public Information for Consumers, says they need to increase their rates because it's costing them more to service their growing customer base.

Bishop says they are seeing 20,000 new customers every year... and they need to build the infrastructure - such as pipeline - to service them.

The PSC could take a year or more to rule on the request.

Consumers Energy customers are already paying an extra dollar-fifty (average) a month due to a two year surcharge passed in 2004.
