New Homes

Build to a higher standard

Learn about the benefits of choosing a high-efficiency home.
DTE New Homes use less energy than homes built to minimum standards, which saves you energy costs each year, over the lifetime of your home. Energy-saving features are designed to increase comfort, reduce energy and maintenance costs, and maintain your home’s value over time.


Your participating home builder will use advanced construction methods to meet a higher standard of energy performance in newly built homes.

Each home is inspected and tested by a third-party Home Energy Rating System® (HERS®) rater who is trained in best practices for energy efficiency.

The result? A home built with exceptional design and materials that boost quality, comfort, and energy savings, which you can enjoy for years to come.
