DTE to increase monthly rates by an average of $6 for residential customers

Get ready to pay more to keep your lights on -- Starting today -- a rate increase for those who get electricity from DTE.

 

The Michigan Public Service Commission approved the action for an overall $273-million dollar rate increase for the company that'll cost customers about $6 dollars more per month.

 

Despite approving the increase, the MPSC did deny DTE's asking to charge homeowners who have installed renewable energy projects with a "system access" fee.

 

The utility says the additional money will be put toward system upgrades and tree trimming.
