Typical customer electric generation is located on your property and may include:
Customer generation can serve a number of purposes:
- Emergency generation designed to be used during power outages
- Cogeneration for customers that have consistently high needs for steam or another form of thermal energy
- Peak demand generation to be used during periods of high energy demand
- Dispersed generation, which is customer generation operated at the request of DTE Energy
- Distributed generation, regularly operated by the customer and no larger than 100 kilowatts
- Renewable generation, which uses a renewable energy source to produce power
- Regenerative dynamometer generation installed to provide an electrical load to measure mechanical force or power
- Small power-producing facilities - renewable energy facilities that must meet federal standards
- Isolated generation - any generation that is not connected in any way to the DTE Energy electrical system but serves load that can be transferred to DTE Energy service if the on-site generation is not operating
This Web site is intended to guide you through everything you need to know regarding the “Interconnection Process” and provide you with information about the rates DTE Energy will charge for power we provide to you and pay or credit you for your excess generation.
