At DTE Energy, we believe that climate change is one of the most pressing issues of our time. This is why we are making transformational investments to generate more energy from Michigan-made wind and solar and doing everything in our power to reduce carbon and greenhouse gas emissions as we look toward a net zero future. This is our CleanVision for Michigan.

DTE’s CleanVision means a healthier, brighter, cleaner future for all and we’re committed to getting there with you. This is why we’re also making it easy for our customers to reduce their impact on the environment by offering a wide variety of programs and products that can help create a cleaner tomorrow.

Here are just a few options that can help you balance your natural gas use, reduce your home’s electricity-based carbon footprint, lessen the cost if you want to make the shift to driving an electric vehicle and use energy more efficiently.

Natural Gas Balance
DTE’s CleanVision Natural Gas Balance program is an easy and affordable way to balance the environmental impact of natural gas use. For $4 – $16 a month, DTE Gas customers can balance 25% to 100% of the emissions created from natural gas use. The program combines the delivery of renewable natural gas (RNG) and the purchase of carbon offsets that protect Michigan forests in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. You can learn more about this program and sign up here.

DTE’s CleanVision MIGreenPower program enables you to attribute even more of your electricity use to renewable energy, in addition to the 15% you already receive as part of your energy mix. Joining MIGreenPower helps to accelerate the development of new wind and solar energy projects in Michigan. These projects bring more clean energy onto the grid, reducing emissions and creating a cleaner Michigan for everyone. Due to current market conditions, the energy and capacity credits MIGreenPower customers receive exceed the program’s subscription fee; this means you can enroll in MIGreenPower now at no additional cost to your monthly bill.

Rooftop solar and private generation
While DTE does not install rooftop solar or other private renewable energy generation systems for its customers, the company supports customers who want to take this step. DTE plays an important role in safely connecting these systems to the grid and can work with you and your installer through all steps of the interconnection process.
