Distribution Operations is responsible for the delivery of electricity from substations to end users, including industrial, commercial and residential customers. Distribution Operations maintains more than 700 substations (facilities that use a collection of transformers to reduce voltage and breakers to protect circuits) and 13 service centers and supercenters. These facilities began certifying to the ISO 14001 standard in 2009, starting with the Systems Engineering and Equipment (SE&E) group.
We, the employees of Distribution Operations, SE&E Substations Group, are committed to the safe, reliable, cost-effective and environmentally sound distribution of electricity to our DTE Energy customers.
Together with our DTE Energy partners we will:
- Continue our tradition of environmental stewardship and employee involvement.
- Protect the environment and endeavor to control and prevent pollution.
- Comply with federal, state and local regulations, corporate policies and other requirements to which we subscribe.
- Maintain and continually improve our environmental management system in support of the competitive operation of the electric system.
This policy establishes the framework for setting and reviewing our objectives and targets.
