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. Actual rebate levels vary according to whether the customer receives MichCon gas, DTE electric service, or both. Eligible measures and equipment includes clothes washers, dehumidifiers, programmable thermostats, energy audits, insulation, room air conditioning, appliance recycling, furnaces, boilers, air sealing, and energy audits. Customers should check the program web site for details (see rebate chart). Heating system applications must be filled out separately from Home Energy Audit offers. Rebates also vary based by equipment size and efficiency.

In addition to low income weatherization programs, the Multifamily Dwelling Program offers upgrades in units and common areas for buildings with 5 or more units. Common area improvements include assistance with fluorescent lighting retrofits, lighting controls/sensors, and outdoor/safety lighting. Inside units, tenants can receive upgrades to CFLs, pipe wrap insulation, and water saving devices. Participation is first come-first serve, and an energy audit should be completed prior to installations. More information at 866-796-0512.
