Business Overview

We embrace our position as a force for growth and prosperity in the communities in which we live and serve, and we’re committed to dedicating our energy to making a positive impact on the businesses and residents that surround us. Each day, we work alongside businesses to ensure we’re all doing our part to take care of the environment, and we continue to find new ways to develop sustainable energy plans that will move our state and industry forward. Here’s what we’re doing to create cleaner, more prosperous communities:

Community Outreach Our team actively supports and works alongside local charities and civic organizations across our service areas, and 37 of our executives currently serve on 70 nonprofit boards in the communities that surround us. One of the groups we support is First Robotics, an organization in which Michigan participants are leaders nationally, and an organization that promotes educational and professional growth of our future leaders.

Economic Progress

We continually invest in the future of Michigan business through the DTE Energy Foundation. We recently made a commitment to buy $5 billion in Michigan products and services – and to support the Michigan economy and create 8,500 jobs in the communities we serve – through the Pure Michigan Business Connect program.

Job Creation

We employ nearly 10,000 team members, and since 2014, our energy efficiency programs have created more than 300 jobs in the Great Lakes State. In addition, our youth summer-jobs program, which we launched in 2003, employs hundreds of students each summer to prepare them for professional success and to assume energy leadership roles in the future.

Energy Leadership

We’re Michigan’s largest investor in renewable energy and we own more renewable energy sources than any other company in Michigan; we’re currently building the largest utility-owned solar project east of the Mississippi, and one of the largest urban solar projects in the U.S. Our team is committed to continuing to develop new ways of creating and delivering clean, green energy, and we continually invest in protecting our natural resources.
