DTE continues outreach assisting Detroit residents with energy efficiency upgrades

Powering homes and building up our communities is the cornerstone of DTE Energy’s commitment to helping make Michigan cleaner. Through DTE’s Energy Efficiency Assistance (EEA) Program, neighborhood outreach events have taken place this summer to assist income-qualified customers around the city of Detroit with receiving free home energy-efficiency upgrades. Those geo-targeted areas included the North Coyle neighborhood, just south of Castleton, between Prest and Robson streets, north of Plymouth.

Earlier this month, a block club event was hosted at Mallett Playground in Northwest Detroit, where residents had the chance to enroll in the EEA program, qualifying for energy efficiency upgrades such as insulation, furnace tune-up/AC replacement and water heater replacement, among other weatherization upgrades. DTE’s Public Affairs team was also on-site to share information about all the available customer assistance programs. The summer fun-filled event also included a do-it-yourself home energy savings workshop, free dinner and take-home self-install window insulation kits.

Back in May, a local Spring Savings Event was hosted at the 180 Church in the same neighborhood, which also featured mortgage and property tax assistance presented by Wayne Metro, a partnering organization of EEA. Event attendees had the chance to sign up for EEA and learn more about additional resources available for customers who fall within the federal poverty guidelines. The family-filled event included free lunch, as well as mortgage and property tax assistance presented by Wayne Metro, a partnering organization of EEA.

Applying a whole-home approach to delivering energy-efficient products and services to customers, while maximizing quality of life is an essential priority of the EEA program. By establishing a pipeline to implement these measures in customers’ homes to increase their energy savings, the program is tackling the necessary home energy needs that have been identified as a priority for this community.

DTE is committed to continuing initiatives that further drive neighborhood engagement and help our customers who are in need.
