Which areas of western Michigan have the most power failures, and which have the most reliable electricity? Especially areas closer to Lake Michigan. Is the power in general more reliable or less reliable closer to Lake Michigan?

Michigan isn't India, we really don't have problems with power outages.

Any city with its own municipal power plant is going to be a lot more reliable. The cities of Holland and Grand Haven both have these. Both are near Lake Michigan. I'm in Holland and we rarely have any sort of power outage. Nearly 100% reliable.

The only time we have power outages in our area of Grand Rapids is when there is a big storm with a lot of wind, and tree branches get knocked down (onto the wires). Occasionally too we get ice storms that bring down power lines. They're usually repaired the same day.
