Utility Metering

Campus utilities are provided in two ways:

  1. Generated by the MSU Infrastructure Planning and Facilities Power and Water Department (including electrical, steam and water).
  2. Purchased from outside utility companies, such as Consumers Energy, Board of Water and Light, and the City of East Lansing.

Utility Meters are used to monitor the usage of electricity, steam, condensate, domestic water and natural gas.

A new resource for utility consumption and cost data is available on the Infrastructure Planning and Facilities Utility Billing website.
