DTE Doubles Renewable Energy Capacity

. May 1, 2018.

DTE plans to double Michigan’s renewable energy capacity by 2022, investing over $1.7 billion dollars into multiple projects across the state. The rapid increase in renewables is part of DTE’s plan to phase out coal and reduce carbon emissions by 80% by 2050. Most of the projects slated for development are wind parks, including the first offshore wind park in the Great Lakes, which is nearing approval. Many Ann Arbor businesses and residents have already joined DTE’s MIGreenPower program, where DTE customers pay slightly more to offset the cost of renewable energy investments.
