Though its energy market remains deregulated for the time being, Michigan may soon see some re-regulation in the form of customer purchasing restrictions.

A set of bills proposed by House Energy Policy Chair Aric Nesbitt will require Michigan residents to buy their energy in state. The law this measure looks to overturn allowed customers to seek out alternative means of power, which included drawing it from neighboring states.
