Detroit, Michigan [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] DTE Energy has signed an agreement with Wolverine Power Supply Cooperative, Inc. to provide wind energy supply for the company’s GreenCurrents renewable energy program.
Introduced in April 2007, GreenCurrents provides DTE Energy’s 2.2 million electric customers the option of choosing renewable energy for their homes and businesses. The power will come from the Harvest Wind Farm, developed by John Deere Wind Energy. The project consists of 32 wind turbines capable of producing enough electricity to power more than 15,000 homes. Wolverine has a long-term agreement with John Deere to purchase renewable energy from the wind farm.“We are extremely pleased to be working with another Michigan-based company that is helping develop homegrown sustainable energy in the state,” said Trevor Lauer, vice president of marketing for DTE Energy. “This partnership is an ideal match for our GreenCurrents program, and our goal of inspiring new renewable energy sources right here in Michigan.”
