DTE Energy is on the lookout for companies to help it build several large-scale solar energy projects in southeast Michigan. The portfolio is to be be installed in the service area of DTE Energy’s utility subsidiary, Detroit Edison, over the next four years and will total 12MW.
Prospective companies must have experience in engineering, developing and installing large (over 150kW) systems, and must table proposals at poweradvocate.com by April 1.
Detroit Edison will own and operate the ground- and roof-mounted systems, which are to be built on a range of commercial, industrial and DTE Energy buildings. And the electricity generated will help Detroit Edison to meet state standards that require 10% of utility retail electric sales to come from renewable sources by 2015.
