The article reports that Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox is opposing CMS Energy Corp.'s sale of its west Michigan nuclear power plant. CMS is selling the plant for $380 million to Entergy Corp. Cox said he is urging Michigan regulators to not approve the sale as it would result in higher electricity costs for customers. However, Jeff Holyfield, CMS director of news and information, says customers will save about $250 million in electricity costs over the course of the 15-year contract.
