We understand that our customers and members of the communities we serve are concerned about receiving reliable and safe energy. This summer we’ve been hit with a series of severe storms that have resulted in power outages, frustration, and unacceptable hardships for our customers. We are committed to improving our electric reliability and to do so, we have started to accelerate infrastructure work across Southeast Michigan including in Livonia.

After a recent review of reliability in Livonia, the community experienced outages due to trees interfering with power lines and other electrical equipment. These tree-related outages were heightened by the multiple severe storms that impacted the Livonia area this summer.

Here is a look at where we are planning the infrastructure improvements in Livonia.
