By subscribing to DTE Insight Premium Subscription(s), you agree that you: (1) are a DTE Electric Company customer and at least 18 years of age or older, (2) will be charged and shall pay a monthly equipment fee on your billing statement at the start of each billing cycle unless otherwise agreed upon between you and DTE Electric Company, (3) understand the DTE Energy Bridge remains the property of DTE and is offered only to DTE customers, (4) will use the equipment only at the account address it was requested and return it prior to moving out or terminating service at that address, (5) are opting-in to receive all communication via email, SMS text, phone, direct mail and mobile app, regarding the DTE Energy Bridge throughout the entirety of these Terms and Conditions and (6) have read and understand these Terms and Conditions.
Once you agree to opt-in, you will be offered a 6-month free trial for use of the DTE Energy Bridge. If you are not satisfied with the product for any reason during the free trial period, you may opt out at any time and DTE will provide you with a pre-paid return label. If you decide to keep the DTE Energy Bridge after the 6-month free trial expires, your service will continue uninterrupted and the monthly equipment fee will be charged on your billing statement.

Once the device is returned and in the possession of DTE, the monthly equipment fee will be terminated on your next billing cycle. If you plan to move out and/or transfer your service, it is your responsibility to return the device prior to your move-out date to terminate the monthly equipment fee and avoid a non-returned equipment charge. If a charge is incurred due to a move out, DTE Energy will refund the amount once the DTE Energy Bridge is returned to the mailing address provided and in the possession of DTE Energy. If the DTE Energy Bridge is reported lost or damaged, the monthly equipment fee will be terminated and you will be charged a lost or damaged equipment fee. This agreement and these Terms and Conditions are non-transferrable. Your mobile carrier's message and data rates may apply. Offers and services are subject to change without notice.
DTE Energy's primary purpose is to present our qualified customers with a tool to view their real-time energy consumption and the ability to connect and manage smart devices when the DTE Insight app and DTE Energy Bridge are paired. To qualify, you must be a D1 Residential Service Rate customer and have an advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) meter installed at the location where the DTE Energy Bridge will be connected. The DTE Energy Bridge is not guaranteed to display real-time usage with any other meter type (i.e., net metering, solar, wind, geothermal, etc.).

Accordingly, DTE will not provide any credits or waive any charges associated with the DTE Insight program, including but not limited to the monthly fee, or fee for non-returned, late and/or damaged equipment. In addition, you understand that DTE is not responsible if the DTE Energy Bridge cannot connect, display your real-time energy consumption, displays inaccurate and/or unexpected real-time display results, or the ability to connect and manage smart devices if you are not a D1 Residential Service Rate customer. D1 Residential Service Rates can be found in DTE Electric Company’s Rate Book for Electric Service.
We expect you will install the DTE Energy Bridge immediately after delivery and report any technical issues with the device to DTE Insight Customer Support at (585) 498-7200 or email us. If we determine a replacement DTE Energy Bridge is required, we will replace the DTE Energy Bridge with a new or refurbished device that has comparable features.
If you need to cancel your service, please contact DTE Insight Customer Support at (585) 498-7200 or email us.

Primary energy sources take many forms, including nuclear energy, fossil energy -- like oil, coal and natural gas -- and renewable sources like wind, solar, geothermal and hydropower.Can you explain the problem of energy intermittency? ›
As such, renewable energy cannot always consistently produce energy at all hours of the day – this is called intermittency. Solar and wind farms energy production in Europe have been known to fluctuate between 0 to 23 and 24GW of energy respectively during peak times.What concrete strategy must be adopted to solve the problem on energy Crisis? ›
Energy efficiency and conservation
One way to prevent an energy crisis is learning how to conserve energy, improving, and modernizing energy infrastructure such as smart grid solutions. It is also essential that we use devices LEDs and replace old devices. They use fewer watts of electricity and last longer.
Nuclear Power is the Most Reliable Energy Source and It's Not Even Close | Department of Energy.What is importance of energy? ›
Energy is in everything that we eat, consume, or use. Energy fuels and regulates the body's natural internal functions. It repairs cells and body tissue, is used to build muscle, and is necessary to maintain homeostasis — and the harsher the environment, the more energy is needed to maintain this.What are the problems related to energy? ›
The environmental problems directly related to energy production and consumption include air pollution, climate change, water pollution, thermal pollution, and solid waste disposal. The emission of air pollutants from fossil fuel combustion is the major cause of urban air pollution.What are the effects of energy crisis? ›
Disruptions to the global energy market are putting Governments worldwide under enormous pressure. Rising energy prices are accelerating the cost-of-living crisis and sustaining the vicious cycle of constrained household budgets; increasing food and energy poverty; and increasing social unrest.What is responsible for the current energy crisis? ›
Most economies around the world are facing a deepening energy crisis—due to global supply disruptions, high energy prices, geopolitical turmoil, and an as-yet-unrealized energy transition away from carbon-intensive sources.How does intermittency affect renewable energy? ›
A key problem with generation from solar and other renewable sources is intermittency: solar generators produce only when the sun is shining. Intermittency has the potential to hugely affect the economic value, or equivalently the social costs, of renewable energy.What is intermittency in energy? ›
Intermittent electricity is electrical energy that is not continuously available due to external factors that cannot be controlled, produced by electricity generating sources that vary in their conditions on a fairly short time scale.
Battery storage systems
Batteries have become the most broadly accepted solution to overcome the intermittency challenges associated with renewables.
We can find out which one of these renewable alternatives and power technology examples are the most efficient by calculating the costs of the fuel, the production, and the environmental damages. Wind comes out on top by a wide margin over all the other sources.What is the most sustainable energy source? ›
- Solar energy.
- Wind energy.
- Hydro energy.
- Tidal energy.
- Geothermal energy.
- Biomass energy.
Hydroelectric power is currently the cheapest renewable energy source, costing $0.05 per kilowatt-hour on average. Hydroelectric power is the cheapest because the infrastructure has been in place for a long time, and it produces electricity consistently.What is the most environmentally friendly energy source? ›
It is considered as one of the most widely used form of eco-friendly energy. Typically, for hydropower to be harnessed, turbines and a hydroelectric dam are utilized. The use of water as energy source is not only cheap, but highly reliable.
