Why choose Detroit Thermal?

Unique among Detroit utilities, Detroit Thermal delivers steam energy through an extensive, redundant, underground loop that runs throughout the greater downtown Detroit area. The steam is used for space heating, domestic hot water heating and absorption chilling. Produced in part with renewable energy sources, our environmentally friendly system offers building owners and facilities managers several important advantages:

Lower and labor capital  costs.  Using our system eliminates the need to buy, install, operate and maintain your own, capital-intensive boilers and chillers.

Better reliability.  Our system includes several features, including 17 boilers in four separate steam generation facilities and redundant steam loops, to ensure reliable service 24/7/365. It's no wonder institutions like Detroit Medical Center depend on Detroit Thermal.  Read testimonials >> 

More environmentally friendly.  Detroit Thermal's steam is produced in part with renewable energy (refuse-derived fuel from Detroit Renewable Power's energy-from-waste facility) which helps lower your building's carbon footprint and conserve landfill space, making our steam one of most environmentally sound solutions available.

More space available for profitable uses.  Boilers take up a large amount of otherwise valuable space within a building. By using Detroit Thermal, you can put that space to work more profitably.

Greater simplicity.  Having Detroit Thermal meet your needs for heating and cooling leaves you free to concentrate on your core business. It also reduces the need to store chemicals and fuel on your site.

Simply put, you'll love our energy. For a free, no-obligation economic analysis of using Detroit Thermal in your planned or existing facility, please contact Scott Barr, Director of Business Development, at 313-963-3684 or email sbarr@detroitthermal.com.
