Our Pricing Options Give You More Choice

DTE has more pricing and billing options for you to choose from. Find out what is right for you based on your budget, lifestyle and energy needs.
Dynamic Peak Pricing Rate
DPP is a tiered rate that allows customers with flexible energy consumption patterns to save money on their bill.

By shifting your home energy usage to Off-Peak hours (11 p.m. – 7 a.m. Monday – Friday, and all day long on weekends and holidays), you reduce energy costs.

During times of extremely high demand for electricity, like a heat wave for example, a Critical Peak Event may be called. During an event, the cost of electricity rises, and customers are encouraged to reduce their energy use. DTE will always notify you by email, phone or text message at least 6 hours prior to an event.

Three key actions you can take to save during Critical Peak Events:
  • Pre-cool your home. During summer months, take advantage of Off-and Mid-Peak times by running your air conditioner before 3 p.m. and allow the temperature to rise during On-Peak times. 
  • Wait to do laundry or run the dishwasher. Shift activities like doing your laundry and running your dishwasher to Off-Peak times. The weekend is a great time to catch up on these chores.
  • Avoid or minimize the use of your appliances and electronics with large energy needs during On-Peak times. Unplug charges and use smart strips to completely power down TVs and other electronics.
  • Keep your alert preferences up-to-date to ensure you receive your Critical Peak Event alert.

The more electricity usage you shift to Off-Peak times, the more money you can save!
