Utility Infrastructure Costs
DTE Energy and Consumers Energy are offering an improved formula for cost sharing to build electric infrastructure for new or expanding businesses that are large energy users. This is intended to lower the cost of electric infrastructure and stimulate our state’s economy. The new formula applies to businesses with 1,000 kilowatts (kW) or greater of electric demand, that are willing to enter into service provider contracts with the utilities.
Pure Michigan Business Connect
The utilities committed early on to spend an additional $750 million on Michigan made goods and services. They’re exceeding that goal and as a result, creating thousands of jobs in our state.
We need to hear from you at the beginning of your projects so that we assist with site selection, provide infrastructure maps, calculate rate options and offer energy efficiency options.
To make it easy to contact us, we’ve established new communication channels. In addition to the team members listed on our websites, we’ve established central mailboxes and toll free numbers.
Contact us, we look forward to working with you to energize Michigan!
