JACKSON, Mich. (AP) - Consumers Energy has committed nearly $200 million this year to upgrade its natural gas system in Michigan.

The unit of Jackson-based CMS Energy Corp. says Tuesday that crews will upgrade more than 88 miles of infrastructure as part of a $71 million program to enhance natural gas safety and reliability for its more than 1.7 million natural gas customers.

The projects are in addition to $128 million that Consumers Energy will spend this year to expand and enhance other areas of its statewide natural gas system.

The utility says a team of employees is dedicated to gas main installation projects and service requests, allowing the company to respond quickly. Consumers Energy has about 27,000 miles of distribution and transmission gas pipelines in Michigan.
