The article presents information on the strategic planning of CMS Energy Corp. The Jackson-based company is closing in on asset sales that by year-end should leave CMS largely a U.S. company, completing a strategy to shed nonstrategic operations and focus on its core electric and natural-gas utility, Consumers Energy Co. In the past few weeks, CMS has announced nearly $1.2 billion in pending asset sales. CMS also plans to auction off other gas pipeline and power-generation businesses around the world.
