GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Consumers Energy is planning a power outage in Grandville and Wyoming for 7 p.m. Thursday.

On Thursday afternoon, Consumers announced that electric service to 4,366 customers in the Grandville/Wyoming area would be interrupted for between 45 minutes and one hour beginning at 7 p.m. Thursday.
