DTE Energy Customers Can Qualify For Extensive Rebates That Positively Affect Your Bottom Line

In 2008, legislation was passed in Michigan directing utilities to offer energy efficiency programs to their customers. DTE Energy launched comprehensive electric and gas energy efficiency programs to reduce consumption in businesses. Participating in the programs is extremely easy, and there’s no need to enroll and all you need is to work with a authorized Trade Ally like TCS Michigan.

You can take advantage of incentives for energy efficient upgrades tailored to reduce energy used in your business, resulting positively to your bottom line. There are two basic categories of incentives you can take advantage of – Prescriptive Incentives and Custom Incentives.

DTE Energy Prescriptive Incentives

Prescriptive incentives provide predetermined payments to DTE Energy’s electric and natural gas business customers for the installation of energy-efficient equipment, including, but not limited to, lighting, controls, HVAC, refrigeration and food service equipment. Incentives are provided for qualified improvements and equipment commonly installed in a retrofit or equipment replacement situation. Prescriptive incentives are paid based on quantity, size and efficiency of the equipment.

DTE Energy Custom Incentives

When customers cannot find a prescriptive measure that fits their project, they can apply for custom incentives. This program provides incentives to customers for measures installed in qualified projects that are less common or more complex than Prescriptive Incentive measures. Custom incentives are paid based on the first year of energy savings (kWh and/or MCF). A reservation application is required for all custom incentives.
