Say no to the DTE rate hike!

While we’ve been dealing with power outages and fast-rising electricity bills, DTE has been profiting big time from the pandemic. Now DTE is trying to raise electricity rates on families again, by 8.8 percent. Send a public comment to the Michigan Public Service Commission to say NO to the rate hike.

Long & frequent power outages

Michigan’s utilities are fourth-slowest in the country at restoring power, and DTE is the slowest in Michigan. DTE ranks in the bottom 25% for reliability nationally. Take action here.

Health Impact Assessment

“They showed that high household energy burdens, low residential energy efficiency, and extreme heat exposure, are concentrated in the same census tracts which are more highly exposed to DTE air pollution, and more likely to be Black, People of Color, and low- to moderate-income.” – Nick Leonard
