Hire a Contractor

If you prefer to have a licensed contractor install your new insulation, search our directory to find participating contractors. These contractors do not represent or work for DTE.

You qualify for a rebate if DTE is the primary provider of your home’s heat (most DTE natural gas and natural gas/electric combination customers qualify). Premise eligibility is limited to single family homes. Single family homes are defined as 2 or less connected units. Each unit must be individually metered for natural gas and electric and each unit must have its own heating, cooling and water heating equipment. New construction homes do not qualify.
