Today in Michigan, more than one million people are living below the federal poverty level. Our state's struggling economy—coupled with our unforgiving winters—means the need for utility bill payment assistance is great. DTE Energy partners with local agencies and organizations to provide case management solutions, energy efficiency education and utility payment assistance to customers in need throughout the year.

Onsite services include:

  • Help with applying for energy assistance
  • Energy efficiency and education—tips to help you reduce your energy bills
