It appears few Michiganders who spent the weekend without electricity will be able to apply for a credit on their next utility bill.

More than 600,000 DTE and Consumers Energy customers spent part of the past few days in the dark after strong storms knocked out their power. Both utilities expect to restore electricity to most, if not all, of their affected customers by late Tuesday or Wednesday.

About 400,000 homes and businesses in Michigan were still without electricity Friday night – after high winds knocked out power to much of the state on Wednesday.
