Most of our customers have an advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) meter and DTE Energy makes it easy to access your energy usage data. Electric customers can access their hourly electric usage data and gas customers can access their daily gas usage data from the past 13 months. If you have not yet created an online account and would like DTE Energy to send your energy usage data to you or a third party, the Customer Consent Release Form must be completed and sent to us.
We collect customer information based on our business relationship with you, your use of our utility services and other products we provide. Some examples include, but are not limited to:
DTE Energy will not disclose your information to third parties and other inquirers without your consent. A third party is a person or entity that has no contractual relationship with DTE Energy to perform services or act on behalf of DTE.
However, DTE may disclose your information to DTE agents and contractors working on behalf of the company, when it is necessary to provide electric or natural gas utility services to you without first obtaining your prior consent. DTE can disclose your information in emergency situations and as directed by any warrants, court orders or subpoena. The provision of such information will be reasonably limited to the amount authorized by law or reasonably necessary to fulfill a request compelled by law.
DTE Energy will not sell your information — except in connection with sales of certain aged receivables — to collection firms for purposes of removing this liability from its accounts.
Yes, you do have a right to know what information DTE Energy maintains about you, except for proprietary data or information which is used for internal business purposes only. We will make a reasonable effort to respond to your request within 10 business days following receipt of your request.
Yes, you may provide information to those you trust or request information be released to a third party of your choice. A third party is a person or entity that has no contractual relationship with DTE Energy to perform services or act on behalf of DTE. Once DTE obtains consent from you and the information has been transferred to you or your designated third party, DTE is not responsible for loss, theft, alteration or misuse of the information by anyone.
To share your data with a third party, please visit our Energy Usage Data page or log in to your account.
If you don’t have an online account, please call Customer Service at (800) 477-4747. Your data will be provided to you via mail or email within 10 business days.
If you’d like DTE Energy to share your data with a third party, the Customer Consent Release Form must be completed and sent to us.
If you are an electric choice customer and you would like DTE Energy to share your data with a third party, the Electric Choice Customer Consent Release Form must be completed and sent to us.
Weather-adjusted energy usage data is a customer’s gas or electric usage for a given period of time that has been normalized. During a selected month, when the weather is hotter or colder than normal, normalized data is calculated to determine what your energy usage would have been if the weather was “normal.” To determine your weather-adjusted energy usage data, download this form for instructions.
