We’re celebrating ENERGY STAR Day by continuing our commitment to share the benefits of energy efficiency with all our customers. Increasing energy efficiency can help you lower the cost of your energy bill while also reducing gashouse emissions and lowering overall electricity demand.

Energy savings can come at little to no-cost with simple changes.  Replace your five most frequently used light fixtures throughout your home with ENERGY STAR-certified bulbs to save nearly $40 per year in energy costs. Homes equipped with ENERGY STAR certified products on average use about 24% less energy.

Recycling old appliances like a refrigerator, freezer, dehumidifier, or air conditioner could save you up to $80 or more each year in energy costs. DTE’s appliance recycling program will pick up your old refrigerator or freezer for free and give you $50. Replacing that appliance with one that is ENERGY STAR-certified could save you nearly $260 over the lifetime of the appliance while helping you reduce climate change. To learn more about the appliance recycling program and schedule your free pick-up, visit dteenergy.com/recycle.
