MARQUETTE, MI--   Upper Peninsula Power Company is asking the Michigan Public Service Commission to let it read meters the way it usually does. 

UPPCO currently reads customer meters on a bi-monthly basis. During the off months, the company estimates energy usage. It has filed a request with the MPSC seeking to extend the practice.


TAMPA, FL--   Crews from Upper Peninsula Power Company are on their way to Florida to assist in power restoration efforts after Hurricane Irma caused widespread outages. 

Tuesday morning utility workers left the U.P. and headed toward Tampa. They’ll be joined by line technicians and supporting staff from across the country.

UPPCO Vice President Brett French says U.P. customers won’t be impacted by the crews’ departure. He says they have sufficient resources remaining to respond to inclement weather or other events that may affect power delivery.
