DTE Energy's renewable energy certificate product, GreenCurrents, is now Green-e Energy certified, according to the Center for Resource Solutions. The program, says DTE Energy, was introduced in April 2007 to give DTE Energy's Detroit Edison electric customers the option of "greening up" their power with renewable energy created from wind, biomass and other environmentally friendly sources.

Under the GreenCurrents program, Detroit Edison residential electric customers can purchase a block of renewable energy that is equal to 15% to 20% of a typical home's monthly electric usage or match 100% of their electricity consumption with renewable resources. Business customers can purchase 1,000 kWh of green power for an extra $20 per month or match all of their electricity usage with renewable energy for an additional $0.02 per kWh.
