Investing in Electric Grid Upgrades Every Year

It’s a commitment as big as the 7,600 square miles of our electrical grid. DTE Energy will invest millions of dollars every year to construct new substations, upgrade poles and wires, install new technologies and continue our enhanced tree trimming program. To learn more about how we’re building an advanced power grid, see our electric infrastructure upgrades page.

DTE's Multi-Year Natural Gas System Improvement Program

For homes and businesses, natural gas is a convenient, proven technology. To support this trusted energy source, over the next five years DTE Energy will invest $1.6 billion to upgrade the natural gas infrastructure serving Michigan neighborhoods and businesses.

Powering Michigan’s Economy With Jobs

These infrastructure investments benefit us all and they also brighten the lives of many hard-working people significantly. That’s because a major portion of our electric and natural gas improvements will be made through Michigan-based suppliers, helping to create and support more than 8,500 jobs in our home state.
