|Michigan forecast to return to normal winter temps, yet natural gas prices expected to remain near historic lows|
"As the temperatures begin to dip, we expect to see an increase in natural gas use across our territory this winter season, with demand estimates up about 9 percent over last winter," said
"The good news is the actual price of natural gas will be lower than last winter, and remains near its low point over the past 10 years. Still, we encourage everyone to be prepared for winter by taking steps to save energy and keep their homes warm, efficient and safe before the cold weather hits," said Brudzynski.
DTE encourages customers to take proactive measures to reduce their natural gas usage by installing programmable thermostats, increasing insulation and weatherproofing drafty air leaks to stay warm and comfortable this winter.
