Reduced Billing Frequency

Qualified DTE Energy customers are automatically enrolled in Reduced Billing Frequency if your energy use is less than $30. Once your account balance reaches $30 or more, your bill will be sent to you on your normal billing date, with no penalties. Regardless of your bill amount, you will receive a bill at least once every three months.

Program Highlights

Less Paperwork

Reduced Billing Frequency not only saves you time managing paperwork, it's better for the environment.

Less Checks

All customers with monthly energy use less than $30, and who pay their DTE Energy bill in full and on time are eligible. Customers enrolled in eBill Paperless Billing, AutoPay, BudgetWise Billing®, other payment plans, a payment agreement, Electric/Gas Choice or accounts with arrears are not eligible.
