Detroit Edison Proposes Renewable Energy Program

The Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC) is seeking comments on a renewable energy option proposed by Detroit Edison, which serves 2.1 million electricity customers in Southeastern Michigan. Under the proposed program, the utility's residential customers could purchase renewable energy equivalent to 50% or 100% of their electricity needs at a rate premium of 2¢/kWh. Non-residential customers would have an additional option of purchasing renewable energy in 1,000 kWh increments (blocks) each month at a premium of 2¢/kWh for the first 3,000 blocks and 1.8¢/kWh for all additional blocks. Initially, the utility would purchase renewable energy certificates (RECs) from projects located in the Great Lakes region to supply the program.

In seeking public comment, the MPSC is particularly interested in the appropriateness of a program design that would give greater weight to supplier proposals on the basis of their location within Detroit Edison's service territory and the state of Michigan. The Commission directed the utility to implement a voluntary, renewable energy program in November 2004. Comments are requested by October 14th.
