Consumers Energy Showing Thanksgiving Cooking Cost Value

November 22, 2017 11:00 AM

JACKSON, Mich., Nov. 20, 2017 – Consumers Energy is sharing that the cost of the energy it takes to cook a traditional Thanksgiving feast is less than $2. That value includes the energy – either natural gas or electricity -- for roasting the stuffed 18-pound turkey at the center of the table and for simmering or baking enough side dishes and desert to serve 12 hungry guests.

Customers can increase their energy value even more by using a roasting bag to cut in half the time it takes to cook a turkey, combining several dishes when baking, and keeping the oven door closed. Other tips to trim holiday energy costs are at www.ConsumersEnergy.com/myhome.

While it may not be a day with big shopping deals and money saved, it’s a day that has become increasingly more popular since it began six years ago.

There are many reasons why people choose the holidays to give to charity. Some may be looking to meet deadlines for last-minute tax deductions, some desire to give out of the goodness of their hearts and others are moved by a specific charity's services.
