Detroit Edison, a subsidiary of DTE Energy Co., has issued two requests for proposals (RFPs) that are expected to add a significant amount of Michigan-based renewable power to the company's energy portfolio over the next two years.

The two RFPs will help Detroit Edison meet renewable energy provisions contained in the Clean, Renewable and Efficient Energy Act, a comprehensive energy reform package approved last year that requires Michigan's electric utilities to serve 10% of their retail sales from renewable energy resources by 2015.

The first RFP seeks potential partners for the development of a Michigan-based wind farm (or farms) capable of producing up to 75 MW of new wind power. The facilities must be operational by Dec. 31, 2011. Upon completion of the project (or projects), Detroit Edison would take ownership of the facilities, and would receive 100% of the wind energy and renewable energy credits. Responses to this RFP are due by Nov. 2.

The second RFP seeks long-term agreements for the purchase of capacity, energy and renewable energy credits from approximately 106 MW of renewable energy resources. Detroit Edison expects to sign multiple 20-year power purchase agreements for qualifying Michigan-based energy produced from resources such as wind, solar, landfill gas and biomass. Responses to this RFP are due by Oct. 23.

Detailed bid documents for both RFPs are available on the PowerAdvocate bid event platform. Potential bidders must be registered with PowerAdvocate to access the bid documents; the registration site is poweradvocate.com.

Detroit Edison has issued a request for proposals (RFP) to purchase Michigan-based renewable energy credits (RECs) that will help the utility meet state requirements for providing electricity generated from renewable resources. Michigan's electric utilities must obtain 10% of their retail sales from renewable energy resources by 2015.

The RFP specifies that the RECs must come from resources located in Michigan. Qualifying renewable technologies include energy produced from wind, solar, landfill gas, biomass, anaerobic digesters, geothermal, hydroelectric dams, industrial cogeneration and gasification facilities. Detroit Edison is seeking long-term agreements with providers.

Potential bidders must register at poweradvocate.com.
