The article presents views of energy companies of Michigan on outage patterns in their service areas, including outages caused by storms. According to Dan Bishop, public-information director with Consumers Energy Co. parent CMS Energy Corp., storm patterns in Michigan are difficult to predict and even underground electrical systems can be affected by heavy rains and other damage. DTE Energy Co. says buried power lines cannot stop all outages, instead they do add problems.
