[RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Consumers Energy is seeking competitive bids for the development of renewable energy projects in Michigan. The action supports the utility’s Renewable Resource Program, which was recently approved by the Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC). Consumers Energy is seeking sources to supply 265,000 MWh of renewable energy. The Renewable Resource Program is a replacement and significant expansion of a smaller Green Power Pilot Program, which Consumers Energy offered from 2001-2004. The utility’s Request For Proposal offers independent green power developers long-term power supply contracts of up to 20 years.
