ANN ARBOR, MI -- DTE Energy has overshot the amount of money it is asking for by roughly double, according to a filing from Attorney General Dana Nessel this week.

DTE Energy, which has come under fire in Ann Arbor this year after numerous, long-term outages, has asked for a $622 million rate increase, nearly double the $324 million it actually needs, according to a filing submitted to the Michigan Public Service Commission on Tuesday, Aug. 15 by Nessel’s office.
