Looking to save money and energy at your facility? The DTE Your Energy SavingsSM Program offers several opportunities.

You can take advantage of incentives for energy-efficient upgrades and improvements tailored to reduce energy used in your business, resulting positively to your bottom line.

Incentives are available for an array of energy-saving technologies, both electric and gas. Choose from a prescriptive menu of projects with pre-set incentives. This project menu includes incentives for energy-efficient lighting, motors and drives, controls, heating ventilation and air conditioning, refrigeration and more. If you have an energy-saving project that doesn’t fall under this prescriptive incentive program, you may qualify for our Custom Incentive Program.

Please note: This program is not available to DTE Energy customers in multifamily buildings or complexes consisting of five or more units per building. Please visit the Multifamily Dwelling Programto learn about energy-saving upgrades to both tenant and common areas.
