DTE Energy Issues RFP for Renewable Energy Projects

DTE Energy has added approximately 500 MW to its portfolio of renewable energy projects as a result of the continued growth in its MIGreenPower voluntary renewable power program. MIGreenPower, which is supported by 35 industrial, over 450 small businesses, and over 48,000 residential customers, allows DTE Electric customers the ability to attribute more electricity to renewable energy than the 15% DTE provides to all customers.

“We want to thank all of our MIGreenPower customers for their participation in the program,” says Trevor Lauer, president and COO of DTE’s electric company. “Over the next decade, we plan to continue adding clean energy projects and investing in new technologies to move our state closer to a carbon neutral future.”

DTE has issued a request to proposals (RFP), in response to customer commitments for new wind and solar projects. These projects can be with or without energy storage. The projects must be ready for commercial operation by 2023. They must be located in Michigan and interconnected with the Midcontinent Independent System Operator, (MISO), or distribution level transmission.
