You just need to call the company and talk with them.  They know the laws and will give you your options.  Try to work something out with them.

I live in MI too.  Last year we kept on getting two bills from two separate places.  The company couldn't figure it out and we round and round with FIA and they kept saying are address didn't exist.  I am not sure what your elec. company is but that is my story.

I know my electric company, you can just call and work out a payment plan with them and they wont shut you off.

they cant shut you off here if you have children under 5.

Call them tell them your situation and they will work to find a solution. Most time they have a emergency reserve fund for ppl in your situation.
