Detroit Edison has issued a request for proposals (RFP) that will continue to add Michigan-based renewable power to the company's energy portfolio.
The utility is seeking approximately 245 MW of renewable energy from solar, wind hydro, biomass or landfill gas facilities that would be operating by the end of 2014. Of that amount, approximately 120 MW would be operating by the end of 2012.
The notice of intent to bid this RFP is due by Jan. 21, 2011.
Detroit Edison notes it expects the majority of its renewable energy to come from wind resources, but it also has two solar energy pilot programs that could produce approximately 20 MW of power.
