Electrical Engineering for Wayne State University

Conversion from Detroit Public Lighting Department to DTE

Detroit, Michigan

In anticipation of the Detroit Public Lighting Department (PLD) ceasing to provide electric power to customers starting in approximately 2020, the City granted permission to PLD customers, among them Wayne State University, to become DTE customers. In 2014, Wayne State University (WSU) and Detroit Edison (DTE) began planning for the conversion of the University’s electrical service from PLD to DTE. In 2015, MEP firm, Peter Basso Associates, began providing electrical engineering consulting services to WSU as it started the intricate process of converting its electrical service from PLD to DTE at 48 campus buildings.
