August 2007 - DTE Energy has signed a 10-year agreement with the developers of a new, Michigan-based wind project to supply the company's GreenCurrents renewable energy program. Under the program, the utility's residential and commercial customers can choose to purchase renewable energy either in 100-kWh blocks or for 100% of their electricity usage. Residential customers are charged $2.50 per block (or 2.5¢/kWh), while commercial customers pay $2 per block (2¢/kWh). Both customer classes pay 2¢/kWh for the 100% usage option. The wind project will start with two 2.5-MW wind turbines with an ultimate capacity planned to be in excess of 100 MW. The program was introduced in April and has garnered more than 3,000 customers to date.
