Beautifully engraved certificate from the Consumers Power Company
in 1976. This historic document was printed by the American Banknote Company and has an
ornate border around it with a vignette of two allegorical men sitting by a map of Lake Michigan, Lake Huron, Lake Erie and the State of Michigan. This item has the printed signatures of the Company’s President and Secretary and is
over 25 years old.
The company's name was changed from the Consumers Power Company to Consumers Energy Company in 1997. Consumers Energy is one of the largest combination gas and electric utilities in the United States, and is the principal subsidiary of CMS Energy. The company has 115 years of experience in producing, transmitting and distributing electricity and natural gas. Industrial giants rely on Consumers Energy every day for energy expertise.
This is an exciting time in the energy business. The industry is changing dramatically, driven by the push toward deregulation that is sweeping the country. Deregulation allows customers to choose who they buy their energy from. Consumers Energy is redesigning itself to ensure the company thrives in this competitive future.
To better serve customers, the company is organized into separate gas and electric business units. Many of its business processes have been reengineered to improve productivity, efficiency and customer focus. Consumers Energy strives to improve quality and reliability, keep rates competitive and find new ways to generate revenue.
