Community Advocacy Impacted Public Service Commission Ruling on DTE

Facing mounting pressure from advocates, the Public Service Commission took DTE to task for a number of outrageous budget items, nixing hundreds of millions of dollars requested for bloated executive compensation, and unjustified spending on fossil fuel plants and IT infrastructure.
