JOIN US DEC. 5 FOR A 2018 PROGRAM KICK-OFF AND DESIGNATED TRADE ALLY TRAINING EVENT
Oct.19, 2017 – On Dec. 5, we’ll be hosting two special events – one in the Detroit area; one in Grand Rapids – for all DTE contractors, during which we’ll be rolling out 2018 Program details AND providing the first Designated Trade Ally training of the 2018 Program Year. This training is for contractors who want to renew their status or want to receive the designation for the first time and gain access to additional Program features. This designation is especially important going into 2018, because one of the major policy changes to the Program will be restricting third-party payments only to Designated Trade Allies. In addition, we’ve tighten the policies concerning the Designated Trade Ally status – so make sure to mark your calendar for one of these events. To register, click on the EVENTS page link above and follow the instructions. If you have any questions, contact our office at 866.796.0512 (and press option 3) and mention the 2018 Designated Trade Ally training.
YOU HAVE 6 WEEKS LEFT TO APPLY FOR THESE TWO BONUS OFFERS
Process Boiler Tune-up Bonus
Oct.19, 2017 – You have until Nov. 30 to perform and submit for payment process boiler tune-ups that can earn you up to $1,000 bonus. This limited-time offer not only provides the normal incentives to customers for having the tune-ups performed on their equipment, but the customer and the Trade Ally both will receive a bonus for having the work completed.
- A $500 bonus (each) will be given to the customer and Trade Ally for tune-ups of process boilers ≥ 6,000 input MBH and < 10,000 input MBH.
- A $1,000 bonus (each) will be given to the customer and Trade Ally for tune-ups of process boilers ≥ 10,000 input MBH.
This offer is available to all DTE natural gas business customers. Final Applications must be submitted by Nov. 30, 2017. For detailed information on how to apply for the bonuses, download our Fact Sheet by clicking here.
Customers can get $10 per steam trap surveyed
Oct. 19, 2017 – Customers have until Nov. 30 to perform steam trap surveys and submit them for payment – earning a $10 incentive for every steam trap surveyed, regardless of whether the trap is repaired or replaced.
(And because of the third-party payment option, customers can assign those incentives to you!)
This offer is separate from incentives available to DTE business customers for the repair and replacement of steam traps (see Page 25 of the 2017 Program Application). To receive this incentive, the customer must complete both sides of a special worksheet and submit it along with all required documentation by Nov. 30, 2017.This incentive is capped at $20,000 per customer.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If a customer had steam trap surveys performed in 2016 that revealed failed traps, but did not result in any repair(s) or replacement(s), they are not eligible to participate in this offer. For a complete explanation of the application process, download the two-page worksheet here.
