DETROIT (AP) – DTE Energy Co. is proposing new wind and solar projects in Michigan that would double the utility’s renewable energy capacity.

The Detroit-based utility announced Friday that it’s submitted its 2018 Renewable Energy Plan to the Michigan Public Service Commission. The plan includes $1.7 billion in investments and would increase DTE’s renewable energy capacity by 2022 from 1,000 megawatts to 2,000 megawatts — enough clean energy to power over 800,000 homes.

The plan includes bringing new wind parks online, building two additional wind parks and installing new solar power projects. DTE says it also plans to offer a voluntary renewable energy program specifically designed for large business customers.

Michigan requires electric providers to produce 15 percent of their power from wind or other renewable sources by the end of 2021.

  1. WASTING OUR MONEY!! This is what happens when degenerate democrat eco-nazis are put in charge.

    HELLO? WE DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH SUNLIGHT IN ARIZONA TO MAKE SOLAR POWER CHEAPER THAN COAL! IN MI THE SUNLIGHT IS PALTRY COMPARED TO AZ BUT THE STUPIDEST ISSUE IS MAINTENANCE! SOLAR PANELS ARE CHEAP CHINESE JUNK WHICH ARE REPLACED REGULARLY IN THE DESERT WHICH HAS NO STORMS, NO SNOW, NO HORRIBLE WEATHER TO WHICH MI IS SUBJECTED.

    HELLO? THE WIND IN MI IS NOT ENOUGH TO TURN THE BLADES AND WHEN THE WIND DOES BLOW, THE VELOCITY IS SUFFICIENT TO BREAK THE WINDMILLS. THE WORST IS THE PILES OF DEAD, ENDANGERED BIRDS BELOW THE WINDMILLS, KILLED BY THE BLADES WHICH SPIN VERY SLOWLY AT THE CENTER, BUT 180MPH AT THE TIPS.

    LIBERAL IDIOTS NEVER BOTHER TO EVALUATE FAILED OUTCOMES BECAUSE THEIR INTENT WAS GOOD NOTHING ELSE MATTERS.
