DTE Energy - Commercial and Industrial Energy Efficiency Program

April 05, 2023


DTE Energy is offering a comprehensive set of incentives to facilitate the implementation of cost-effective, energy efficiency improvements for business customers.

The incentive program offers business customers prescriptive incentives for many common energy efficiency measures and custom incentives for other eligible energy efficiency improvements. This program is not available to DTE customers in multifamily buildings or residential complexes. These customers are eligible to participate in the Multifamily Program or Residential Programs for energy saving upgrades to both tenant and common areas.

For custom measures, the maximum allowable incentive is limited to 50% of the allowable implementation cost of all eligible custom measures. Internal customer labor costs cannot be included in project costs.

Program incentives are limited per customer for each program year. The customer is defined as the business entity, with a unique taxpayer ID number, that is responsible for the DTE utility bill for one or more facilities.

Funds are limited and incentive payments are dependent on fund availability. Completed final applications for the program year must be received by November 30, 2023. Applications received after that date will be canceled.
