DTE is committed to taking a proactive approach to improving our electric grid. One tool our team uses to accomplish this is an “underground fault indicator.” This device takes thermal images of our underground system for the purpose of identifying a potential fault before it causes an electrical disruption. Before the introduction of these tools, DTE could only take a reactive approach. This means fixing the issue after it occurs. Fault indicators allow our team to be one step ahead by predicting potential issues and working to prevent them. This is one of the many pieces of equipment we use to help keep your power reliably and safely flowing for years to come.
DTE is dedicated to continuously improving our infrastructure, so you have the power you need now and in the future. Get more information on reliability improvement work happening in your neighborhood at empoweringmichigan.com/reliability-improvements.
