Refrigerator Replacement Program



  1. You must be a DTE Electric customer

  2. You must provide a recent copy of your DTE bill

  3. Your existing refrigerator must qualify for replacement based on one of the following two criteria:

    a. Your refrigerator was manufactured before December 2000*

    b. Your refrigerator is determined to be running inefficiently based on a meter reading performed by a Habitat staff member

  4. You must agree to have your old refrigerator removed by one of our Retail Partners and replaced with an Energy Star refrigerator

  5. Your annual household income must not exceed the maximum amounts shown below based on household size.

*To determine the age of your refrigerator, locate the model number and serial number (typically found inside your refrigerator or outside on the lower front of your refrigerator) and then go to Apliance411 at to determine its age.  Remember, if your refrigerator was manufactured after December 2000, it may still qualify based on its energy consumption.  Call us to set up an in-home metering of your refrigerator.  If you need help, please contact us (734) 800-4220.
