Detroit Edison, a south-east Michigan-based electricity provider, has issued a request for proposal (RFP), which will continue to add renewable power to the company’s energy portfolio.
The utility company is seeking approximately 245MW from renewable energy facilities operating by the end of 2014.
To meet the state of Michigan’s renewable energy goals, Detroit Edison plans to provide ten per cent of its power from renewable resources by 2015.
The company plans to own facilities to supply up to half that power and contract with third-party producers for the rest.
Detroit Edison expects the majority of its renewable energy to come from wind resources. The company has acquired easements on more than 75,000 acres of land in Michigan for development of utility-scale wind farms. The company also has two solar energy programs that could produce approximately 20MW of power.
