DTE overhead crews worked together to install a new pole and upgrade reliability for customers previously served by a pole on Muerdale Blvd in West Bloomfield Township. They started work at the top of the older pole and worked their way down, transferring the lines to the new one. The crew then connected a temporary jumper to the transformer so that the power did not need to be deenergized for the customers.  

You may see more of our crews in the coming months as part of our accelerated electric reliability projects in your area, including more tree trimming and infrastructure updates. All these projects are underway to improve your service and reliability for the short- and long term.
