Welcome to the
Bring Your Own Charger® program!
Enjoy up to 2,100 miles* of free driving per year by earning a monthly $8 incentive.
Enroll in the Bring Your Own Charger® (BYOC) program and use overnight hours to charge your EV.
Charge using a Level 2 charger or 240-volt charging cable
Charge overnight on weekdays between 11 p.m. and 9 a.m.
Charge any time during weekends
Charge your vehicle at least 3 times per month to earn $4, and at least 6 times per month to earn $8
There are times when you may have an urgent need to charge your EV. With BYOC, you may charge up to three times each month outside of the BYOC essentials listed above without losing your incentive for that month.
Incentives are calculated monthly and paid quarterly. You may choose to receive the incentive via PayPal, Venmo, or check. Electronic payments can only be issued to the email address (PayPal) or phone number (Venmo) provided on your application.
Please Note: EV drivers on time of use rates, including the EV rate, are not eligible to participate in BYOC.
Be sure to have this information handy to enroll:
DTE account number
Vehicle identification number (VIN)
Charger's make, model and serial number (optional)
A picture of your vehicle's charging time or smart charger scheduled programmed to charge overnight
We recommend using a mobile device or tablet so you can take the picture while completing your application.
*2,100 free miles based on 3 miles/kWh, at $0.15/kWh. Actual results will vary.
