Statement from DTE Energy Electric President and COO Trevor F. Lauer below regarding today’s MPSC Rate Order decision

“We thank the Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC) for its thoughtful consideration relative to today’s order.

“As part of its multi-year effort to modernize its infrastructure, DTE Energy in August 2016 increased customer rates. The MPSC order issued today reduces customer rates from current levels and, as a result, customers will see a rate reduction and a bill credit.  DTE Energy will work with the MPSC to calculate the credit and appropriately apply it later this year.  Still, DTE Energy customer bills are equal to 2012 levels and below the national average.

“DTE Energy is committed to providing customers with reliable, safe, clean and affordable energy, as well as peace of mind knowing these improvements will directly benefit their daily lives.”
