GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) – DTE Energy cooperates with Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and The Heat and Warmth Fund on Monday to make sure Michigan residents know that help is available to keep their homes warm this winter.
These organizations want to make sure people understand their energy bills. Above DTE Gas Choice Website, customers can learn to read their bills and make sure they get a good rate.
Energy experts also want to remind residents how to avoid cold weather. Precautions like widening the windows, changing the furnace filter, and lowering the thermostat a few degrees can help.
Above all, the leaders of DTE and THAW urge those who are having trouble paying their energy bills to get in touch. There are a number of nonprofits and partner organizations available to help with everything from paying bills to helping buy energy-efficient appliances.
“We want to emphasize to families: Don’t wait. Don’t wait until you’re in trouble. Don’t wait until it’s dangerously cold. Saunteel Jenkins, CEO of The Heat and Warmth Fund, says if there’s a delay on your bill, please get in touch.
