Consumers Energy relocating its Mid-Michigan operations center in 2024
LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - After 60 years in Lansing, Consumers Energy is moving its service center.
The utility’s building on Willow Street in Lansing will be relocated to a 77-acre sit on North Canal Road in Dimondale.
The move is meant to help customer response time when crews are dispatched during an emergency. The utility said the new location has access to highways, so crews will no longer have to drive large trucks through neighborhood streets to reach the freeways.
“Right now, in a lot of cases, we need to drive our large trucks through the city streets for quite a while before we could access the highway to get to the customers who are experiencing issues,” said Terry DeDoes, with CE.
Consumers Energy, the city of Lansing and Windsor Township are working on a tax revenue sharing and water agreement that will benefit all three.
Construction on the new site is expected to begin in 2024.
