Customers who participated in DTE Energy’s efficiency programs in 2017 will cumulatively save nearly $649 million on their energy bills over a lifetime, according to the company’s 2017 Energy Waste Reduction Annual Report.
Chris Kashat, manager of Keg and Wine Party Store in Redford Township, Mich., participated in DTE’s Business Energy Consultation and lighting programs which helped reduce his store’s monthly energy bill.
“The energy savings are substantial,” said Kashat. “We’re paying $300 to $400 a month less for electricity.”
“At DTE, we are committed to helping our customers save energy and lower their energy bills,” said John Boladian, director of Energy Waste Reduction, DTE Energy.
