The Smart Grid Consumer Collaborative (SGCC) recently announced the winners of its 2016 CLEAR Awards, which honor energy-focused organizations for their excellence in customer outreach and engagement. The awards recognize one technology provider, one utility and one non-profit who serve as role models within SGCC and the smart grid industry.

DTE Energy, Itron’s customer based in Detroit, was named one of the three winners.

The winners are selected based on the following pillars:

  • Consumers first
  • Leadership
  • Excellence
  • Authenticity
  • Results

“DTE Energy was selected to receive a CLEAR Award for their consumer-centric approach in the development of their many energy efficiency education and awareness projects,” according to the press release. “DTE became the first utility to offer the free DTE Insight app that links a smartphone to the advanced electric meter to help customers see how they use energy and find ways to reduce usage and save. When a customer adds the DTE Energy Bridge device, they see energy use in real-time and find more ways to cut energy waste and save.”
