|DTE Energy helps customers stay safe and cool while keeping bills affordable during extreme heat|
DTE performs power plant maintenance and inspections along with energy grid upgrades to help ensure system reliability year-round, including periods of extreme weather and heavy energy use. DTE is also helping customers understand and implement steps they can take to ensure they remain comfortable while keeping bills affordable as temperatures rise.
"Weather is one of the biggest factors impacting energy bills," said
DTE is alerting customers via emails, social media posts, web messaging and other channels to share these tips:
DTE also stresses the importance of checking on loved ones and neighbors, particularly seniors and those without air conditioning, during periods of extreme heat. Reach out at least twice a day to watch and listen for signs of heat exhaustion or heat stroke. If necessary, help get vulnerable people someplace cool, such as a local cooling center. Check with your local municipality for cooling center availability.
If a customer has trouble paying an energy bill, DTE can help find assistance. Customers are encouraged to call DTE at 800.477.4747 as soon as they feel they may have difficulty paying a bill. DTE will work with customers to set up affordable payment plans and advise them of local agencies that may offer additional relief.
