By making your monthly bills more predictable, BudgetWise Billing helps to minimize spikes in your amount due during high-demand energy months. This helps you avoid late payments, collection calls and negative credit reporting.

We take the amount of energy used at your current address for the last 12 months and then apply current energy prices to determine your estimated energy cost for the next year. The estimate is divided by 12 to determine your BudgetWise Billing monthly payment.
Current Payment Deferment
When you enroll In BudgetWise Billing, you can defer some or all of your current DTE Energy bill over the next 12 months. This is a great feature for accountholders looking to spread the cost of a large bill over a longer period of time.

Quarterly Review
