Electricity is essential to modern life. For most people the electricity in our homes is not free. Reducing its costs, even incrementally, can save real money over the long term.
Here are some discounts our local utilities offer that most people can benefit from with small painless changes in routine. You must request the discounts be applied to your account.
Time of Day Rate
You could reduce your energy costs by requesting DTE Energy’s residential Time-Of-Day Electric Rate. The more you shift your electricity usage to off-peak hours — early mornings, evenings and weekends — the more you could save.
How It Works
This rate is available to residential customers who choose to have their energy usage metered based on our on and off-peak hours.
