DETROIT, March 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Beginning the weekend of March 22 and continuing through April 12, DTE Energy representatives will read meters on Saturdays and Sundays. The weekend readings work will occur throughout our service territory.
Customers should note that meter readers will wear badges from Olameter, a DTE Energy contractor providing meter reading services.
Weekend readings are necessary because the unrelenting snow and ice this season has made it difficult to access meters, resulting in more estimated bills. DTE representatives will continue to read meters during normal weekday business hours.
Customers are reminded that DTE technicians need to have access to meters in the event of an emergency and to safely read meters for customers.
To ensure continued efficient and reliable service, customers should:
- Keep an access path to meters open and clear of remaining snow.
- By hand, remove ice and snow from meters.
- Keep your dogs restrained or located away from the meter.
Following these tips will keep DTE customers and employees safe.
