This article reports that state regulators have approved a $58.1 million increase in Consumers Energy Co.'s natural-gas rates, just over a third of what the company originally requested. The Michigan Public Service Commission said Jackson-based Consumers could apply the rate increase for transportation, storage and distribution of natural gas as a surcharge, assessed equally to all customers over the next two years.
