DTE Energy History

DTE Energy has its roots in the North American Edison Company, which was a member of the original Dow Jones Industrial Average in 1896.

In 1946 the company was broken up by the Securities and Exchange Commission following the Supreme Court decision in 1946.

Detroit Edison then became an independent company, which was traded on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) using the ticker symbol DTE.

In 1996 the new holding company DTE Energy was formed, which took over the trading ticker symbol DTE. The company changed the name of now-subsidiary Detroit Edison to DTE Electric at that time.

Today DTE Energy distributes electricity to 2.1 million customers through its main subsidiary, DTE Electric, distributes natural gas to 1.2 million customers through DTE Gas, has power plants that generate 11,080 MW, and also offers energy marketing and trading,  energy management services, and independent and on-site power generation.

DTE continues to trade publicly on the NYSE under the symbol DTE, is a member of the S&P 500, is #285 in the Fortune 500, has 9,900 employees, and had $11.55 billion in revenue in 2013.

Over the last several months it was announced DTE was designing a brand new $1B Natural Gas Plant up near St Clair. I would like to contact the project engineers to discuss Hazardous LED lighting for this plant. As the local Regional Manager for Dialight, (A 80 year old LED firm) DTE is one of our largest customers at all of your plants. Would some one be kind enough to forward a me contact? I understand Kiewit in the A&E firm located in Omaha, Nebraska but I would like to meet with a local DTE representative first.

Thank you for your consideration.

Att: Gerald M. Anderson CEO

I have been trying to resolve a problem with GTE local office without any success. I received a bill for 764.66 dollars because DTE was not reading my meter. I paid whatever they billed me monthly. When I spoke to them they said we are not required to read your meter except for once a year! Is that stupid or what. So not only did they bill me for a year of actual usage but I also purchased their protection plan which was supposed to be included in my monthly bill but was not. Now I have a whole year of back charges for the protection plan and actual meter reading. Their supervisor was useless could not give me an explaination! I did find out that they were having billing problems within their organization but that has nothing to do with the customer. The supervisor, Christina was rude and told me there was nothing she could. Is this the way DTE wants to treat their customers? Do I have
To call them every month to make sure they do an actual reading. Do I have to be responsible for their employees error for not including the monthly protection plan charges for over a year.
Please, someone with intelligence and how to run a business call me to address this issue. My number is917328XXXXX.
Thank you

I am directing this complaint to the CEO Gerard M. Anderson because I have not gotten results from anyone else working for DTE. A simple request to receive a gas bill has become a year long nightmare. I began my request through several phone calls to customer service. After waiting months for the promised delivery of my bill I realized I was not going to get the promised “customer service.” I went to the office at Northwest Activity Center only to get the same rhetoric and months later–NO BILL. I sent an email to customer care through your website and I got no results They go through the same time wasting ritual of name , address, account number etc only to get the same results- NO BILL Finally, I sent an email to Sr. VP David Johnson Customer Service and I have not received a response. That was about 2 weeks ago so I have concluded that my concern is unimportant. Because you are the only game in town for the most part, my only option is to continue to spend my time writing emails and making as much noise as I can to GET A BILL sent to my house. I hope you can understand the level of frustration I have experienced and still pay you every month.

I,m a landlord of few rental properties which DTE supplies service, had a bad experience with tenant on one of the property by not paying his electric bills, with out notice to me DTE removed the meter and turned the case to the investigating department, since then they keep telling me that not of this is my fault but they make you feel like a criminal,offered to pay balance for the tenant and even put the account an my name and offered to put down a security deposit until the case the case is resolved, but still refuse to turn the service back on i have a new tenant waiting to move in the property but are keeping my property hostage by keeping the power off, been a DTE costumer for over 50 years and always loyal to them, never missed payment by me personally or any of my tenants. This message is to the DTE management : you should be ashamed for doing this kind of thing to people that depend on you, please WAKE UP!!!

I contacted customer service in February or March regarding an increase in my electric bill. The rep was kind and concerned and promised that there would be an investigation . As of yet the only response I have received is a letter acknowledging my concern but nothing else. I called today and the rep was insulting. She suggested that my 3 year old appliances might be the problem; or that my thermostat was set too high(78), I have many medical problems; or that most of my appliances were electric because I only have a gas furnace, a gas range, a gas hot water heater. The only new appliance I have is the furnace DTE sponsored program installed last fall. She stated that could be the problem. I told her my furnace was supposedly replace with an energy efficient furnace. She then stated it was probably because it was set on 78. My electric bill is now larger than my gas bill. She told me my furnace should be set at 68! I’m not sure but I think she sad my gas bill was $155 for January. She also stated that the temperatures in January were constantly in the single digits and below zero. But my gas bill did not reflect that. She also told me that if they sent someone out and there was nothing wrong with the meter there would be a charge. I don’t know how all these assumptions were made. She asked about medical equipment and I told her yes since last March but my electric did not change drastically until January. As you can tell I am upset.

As a DTE customer I enrolled in online bill pay and also e-bill. I have not received a bill from DTE since February 4, 2017, with the exception of a shut off notice. I have been unable to long into my account since you all updated your system. I have been getting what appears to be the run around regarding this problem for nearly 2 months. I am constantly being told someone from the IT department will be contacting me. I have yet to hear from them. All I ever get is a ticket number but no person has contacted me YET! It is a shame that I have no control to review my bill. You system as well as your customer service support persons is pretty ridiculous. I am appalled that you all at DTE call this customer service. SHAME ON EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU!

“ethicsinaction.dteenergy.com” I tried sending an email to this but was unsuccessful
Good afternoon,
My name is Keisha Lynum and the service address is Detroit, MI 48234

My issue is several of the DTE workers at your plaza one building is involved in a scam regarding padding people accounts with false charges…my ex-boyfriend and several of my ex-friends are paying people under the table to pad charges on to others accounts. I have found copper wiring inside of my wires connected to the line outside…now before I found these wires it was noted that my bill was standard, back in January 2016 they disconnected my power saying that I was behind in the payment plan amount, and I had just made a payment, they also switched my plan due date causing such to happen, but so they could connect other peoples lines to my line, now recently the power went out and your trucks came out to reconnect but removed the lines that was connected to mine, and they are also involved, they have my phone cloned so when I call, I am speaking with someone that they have paid on the inside to discuss my bill with, also I went to pay on my account in June 2016 at one of the Kiosk machines it was posted to my previous account ending with 0057, which had been terminated back in 2010, so I had to call to have the payment moved to my account, which then that lead me to believe that someone on the inside had programmed this into the machine, I spoke with someone at the plaza before but I believe that she too was involved because she never returned my call to discuss the issue I was having, please take a look at my billing history to confirm that I have been billed the correct amounts, because on the phone all I am speaking with are people that are involved in this scheme…now my Oct-Nov 2016 bill electricity is 91.99 and when I called about that the customer service rep informed me because of my furnace, but I did not turn my heat on until Dec 1, 2016 but if you look at the Nov-Dec it is only a few dollars different. I have exhausted all of the avenues that I possibly can to get this issue resolved and nothing is working, so I am writing you to see if something can be done. Please contact me back using this email unless they hack into this one as well.

Thank you

Keisha Lynum

I called DTE and spoke with a representative about a 2016 issue and she gave me information about something from 2009 and it was another customer. After going back and fourth for about 30 minutes of her not being able to find any information I asked to speak to a supervisor and was placed on hold for more than an hour. The supervisor from the customer service in Philippines. Funny how when I owe money they call immediately but when I need an issue resolved I do not get help.

Hello, I stay in a condo in which I own and find it LUDACRIS that DTE has a policy which inlcudes I have to get permission from my association in order to take advantage of a free consultation and light bulbs to save energy and money. Whoever created such policy must not undetstand that condos have owners. THEY DO NOT OPERATE LIKE AN APARTMENT WHEN IT COMES TO MAINTANENCE IN THE INSIDE OF IT!!!. What ever i wish to do in my condo is my business and my prerogative. I am having some work perform in the inside of my condo and guess what??? I DO NOT NEED NO ONES PERMISSION!!! So explain to me the significance of a third party for light bulbs??? It is an insult to any condo owner to have to get permission from someone else to say “yes” when they are not half owners or paying a single penny to maintain the property. This is definitely a hypocritical rule put in place by administration, corporate or whovever is responsible for such policy. On your website, you report that multifamily properties qualify if they are DTE electric consumersand their property has three or more units under one roof. Your right!! Key word: THEIR PROPERTY!/ MY PROPERTY! Yet I do not qualify because I am a electric customer? NO! I HAVE TO HAVE PERMISSION. This needs to change! This is unjustifiable and I should rightfully get the services i am entitled on my on cognitive and my own permission. At the end of the day, I am the only one that can let you in that door not the association. (who you feel you need to ask first).

I was approved to be hired at Enrico Fermi. The HR person (Beth Baumgartner) told me that she was putting together a hire package but in no way would I be able to get the salary noted on my application. I was OK with that since it was not a lot more that the job add had as a maximum. She then told me the most I would get would be 31,000 below the maximum on the job ad. Well with 35 years of experience I asked that she please go in front of the hiring manager because I would like to counter that offer (keep in mind I had still not received a hiring package). Beth then told me she could not because it was higher than most of the people with 30 years with the company. I again asked her to please discuss it with the hiring manager because at this point she was telling me what her offer letter was going to be comprised of minus the other information such as the benefit package, etc. The next thing I find out is Beth sends me an email telling me that she had a meeting with the hiring lead and NQA manager and they were no longer going to extend an offer because she felt it was not a good fit????????????
Now, I assume that HR’s responsibility is to send the FULL hiring package to the prospective candidate and let them make the decision based upon ALL the facts in the hiring package of whether they feel it is a good fit, I don’t believe at the point a candidate is picked for a position that it is right for HR to make that decision for them. Is this how a professional candidate is treated by a company such as DTE?

Unhappy Customer March 11, 2016 at 9:26 am

Hello,

I really need your help corporate officer please help me.
Story is I am living on 1bd apartment with very few equipments since 9 years and this month someone came and check my meter and said it’s not working properly and now DTE sent me bill for $1300 extra for past year from March 2015 to March 2016. I asked my neighbours and even frirnds who lives accros the Street in houses and they said their average bill is around 80 for house.
And if you decide 1300 by 12 it will be around 110, don’t think I would have us this much electricity, it’s something phishy going on here. DTE suddenly realize and checked and charging me this huge amount which I can’t afford. Over these many years I was getting average bill around 40 that’s undrstandable but triple the amount that’s not fair. Can you please look my case and resolve it if possible I am sure something wrong happened or meter is still not working properly and running faster or something.

Please help.
Please help.

Can’t afford to pay this much money for whoever’s mistake on this one.

Hope to see email or reply soon.

Thank you

I1.55 BILLION in revenue and I can’t even get someone to come to my home to restore power, which never should have been shutoff in the first place. Called 15 times and got 15 different answers from 15 unfriendly employees. So quick to take my money, but who gives a XXXXX about your customers and their familes and medical conditions. You should be proud. I mean, look at the monolopy you run. I do not have any other choice for service. If I did, you better believe I would be gone immediately. Be ashamed, very ashamed.

Thank you Mr. Donovan Johnson for being completely useless in a very dire situation as well as the so called supervisor that could only tell me there was nothing she could do to help me. Your company charged my credit card for nearly $900 in error and initially refused to do anything about it. This money was taken out of my account when I was a few days away from closing on my new home and this had a negative effect on my closing payment. Fortunately, I was able to borrow the money from family. This should have never happened. I spoke with a representative that told me the authorization had been cancelled which it had not. This was a very upsetting experience and if another energy company was available I would switch without hesitation. The fact that you make an error of that magnitude but lack the competence to fix it is mind boggling. I explained that this needed to be addressed immediately and got nowhere….a check in 10 business days was eventually offered which did not help the situation. After three weeks of trying to get this resolved a check is being issued but no thanks to anyone that I was told would be helpful. Please be ashamed of this gross failure at customer service and do better for the next person.
