DTE Energy's Commercial Your Energy Savings Program provides prescriptive incentives to commercial and industrial customers who implement energy efficiency upgrades in facilities. Custom incentives, based on the amount of estimated annual energy savings, are also available and apply to all energy efficiency improvement measures that are not eligible for a prescriptive incentive. The New Construction and Remodeling Program provides design assistance and incentives for more efficient buildings by installing energy-efficiency equipment and controls that are not required by building energy codes and are above standard construction practices.

To participate, customers should first verify that a proposed project is eligible, and wait to begin work until they receive a reservation letter from DTE Energy’s Your Energy Savings Team. The customer then has 90 days to begin installing equipment or systems. Final applications must be received within 60 days after project completion or by November 30 of the program year, whichever comes first. DTE Energy’s Your Energy Savings Staff will review the final project documentation, and a post-inspection may be required for verification purposes. Incentive payments will typically be sent within 4 to 6 weeks from the time that all the documentation is received and the field inspection is complete. Contact DTE for more information on this program.
