DTE Energy is transforming to deliver customers a reliable, modern, and clean grid of the future that makes the most sense for Michigan. The company is working tirelessly to ensure Michigan’s energy future is as reliable and affordable as possible by using the right balance of energy sources. This transformation requires commitment and investment, and DTE has plans to invest in a grid of the future that supports our customers’ fast-evolving lifestyles, businesses, and economy.
To fund the next steps in improving reliability, building a smarter grid of the future and producing more clean energy, DTE is seeking Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC) approval for its first rate increase in two-and-a-half years.
DTE’s grid modernization plan includes continuation of the multi-year tree trimming surge program, strategic infrastructure investments to modernize the grid and improve reliability, and smart technologies to help detect and prevent large-scale interruptions. These planned investments will allow DTE to create a more resilient and reliable electric grid, while also growing to meet the increasing electricity needs and Michigan’s growing economy for decades to come.
DTE wants everyone to experience safe and reliable energy. That’s why the company needs to invest in the electric grid, to improve reliability and prepare for growth in electric vehicle charging and new sources of renewable energy.
