Michigan ranks near the bottom of states in outages per customer. While the average duration of the outage fell to nearly half the length of the 2013 level, the average duration of the outage per customer is over one and a half times longer than the average of all the states.

What It Is: Duration of power outage per customer (in hours).

Why It Matters: An unreliable power grid can signal low quality infrastructure, and discourage businesses from locating in that state.
