To qualify for the Charging Forward rebate, you must use one of the listed EV charger network providers.  But, DTE Energy does not endorse any EV network providers or its products, services, or opinions.  Each participating EV charger network provider is an independent company that sets its own pricing, terms and conditions, which may include a requirement that the charger display advertising on its charging stations.  Some or all of the listed EV charger network providers may be unable or unwilling to provide services to you. Other EV charger network providers may be available in your area and you are free to use those providers, but you would not then qualify for a Charging Forward rebate. By clicking any of these links, you will leave and be transferred to a third-party website not affiliated with DTE Energy. DTE Energy does not endorse or approve any third-party websites or its products, services or opinions. The terms and privacy policies of the third-party website will apply.
