DTE Energy

DTE offers a combination of energy audit discounts and rebates for the installation of energy efficiency improvements in Detroit Edison Electric and Michigan Consolidated Gas Co. service areas.

Eligible measures and equipment includes programmable thermostats, energy audits, insulation, central ac systems, appliance recycling, and air sealing. Customers should check the program web site for details.
