Off-Peak Times
During Off-Peak weekday hours (11 p.m. to 7 a.m.), plus all day on Saturday, Sunday and designated holidays, electricity costs are the lowest.
 
Mid-Peak Times
During Mid-Peak weekday hours (7 a.m. to 3 pm. and 7 p.m. to 11 p.m.), electricity costs are about the same as for customers on DTE’s Standard Residential Electric Rate.
 
On-Peak Times
During On-Peak hours or times when demand for energy is greatest (3 p.m. to 7 p.m.), electricity costs are higher.
 
Critical Peak Events
During times of extremely high demand for electricity, a Critical Peak event may be called. During an event, the cost of electricity rises to 95¢ per kWh.

You will be notified at least 6 hours before each Critical Peak event. The events only occur on weekdays from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. and are limited to a maximum of 14 occurrences (56 hours) per calendar year.

5 Ways to Save During Critical Peak Events
  1. Keep your notification preferences up-to-date to ensure you receive your day-ahead notification. To update your contact information, call 855.836.6707.
  2. Pre-cool your home. During summer months, take advantage of Off and Mid-Peak times by running your air conditioner before 3 p.m. and allow the temperature to rise during On-Peak times. Close blinds and drapes, especially on sunny days.
  3. Shift activities like doing your laundry and running the dishwasher to Off-Peak times and on the weekend. The more electricity usage you shift to Off-Peak times, the more money you can save.
  4. Avoid or minimize use of appliances and electronics with large energy needs during On-Peak times. Unplug chargers. Use smart strips to completely power down TVs and other electronics.
  5. Download the free DTE Insight app with an Apple or Android device. Use the app to better understand how your household uses energy.
