Military Times this month ranked Consumers Energy as the #1 employer in Michigan for veterans. In the 2021 Best For Vets: Employers list, Consumers Energy also ranked 20th nationally.

Consumers Energy is committed to serving military veterans through programs like the Electric Lines Boot Camp, a partnership between Consumers Energy, the Michigan State Utility Workers Council, Power for America, and the Electric Joint Apprentice Committee to train and hire veterans as electric lineman apprentices.

“We want our veterans to know that their service to our country has not gone unnoticed, that they have transferrable skills and experience to enable them to be successful,” said Amber Fogarty, manager of Strategic Pipeline Talent Programs at Consumers Energy. “We are very excited to see the bright future these veterans will have within our company.”
