As of 4 p.m., we have restored power to 139,000 of the 150,000 customers impacted by the high winds that blew across southeast Michigan since Saturday.
About 11,000 customers remain without service. We expect most of the affected customers to be restored by the end of the day Tuesday or early Wednesday.
Our crews are working around the clock to restore service. Crews from Ohio, Indiana and Wisconsin are assisting with restoration efforts. Crews faced additional challenges early today because of the overnight snowfall.
Strong winds, with gusts up to 60 mph, caused more than 300 power lines to come down. Customers need to exercise extreme caution and assume any wire is live. Stay at least 20 feet away from any downed wire and anything it’s in contact with, keep children and pets away.
Our tree-trim crews are cutting fallen limbs and clearing the area to assist repair crews. To allow the tree-trim crews to quickly get to the next location where they are needed, they will cut and stack limbs for homeowner use or disposal rather than remove the material.
DTE Energy understands how difficult it is to be without power, and appreciates the patience of customers as we work on the repair process.
Customers are encouraged to report power outages, downed lines or other power problems using our mobile website , online at dteenergy.com, or customers may also call DTE Energy at 800.477.4747 to report power outages or downed lines.
