DTE Energy  is issuing a Request for Proposals (RfP) for a new pipeline of PV and wind projects in Michigan.

These new renewable-energy installations will be used by DTE to help achieve compliance with Michigan's Renewable Portfolio Standard and make good on the company’s commitment to reduce carbon emissions by at least 80% by 2040.   

Through the RfP, DTE is looking for PV projects ranging in installed generation capacity from 25-200MW, along with wind projects ranging from 100-200MW. 

DTE will consider projects that are slated to reach commercial operation between 2021-2023. During that timeframe, DTE has proposed adding up to 775MW of renewable energy assets to its portfolio.  

DTE stands as Michigan’s largest producer of renewable energy, with its 1,200 MW portfolio featuring  14 wind farms and 31 solar parks.

Over the next five years, DTE will invest an additional US$2 billion in renewable energy assets and more than double its renewable energy, generating enough clean energy to power more than 800,000 homes.
