Detroit Edison has a issued request for proposals (RFP) that will continue to add Michigan-based renewable power to the company's energy portfolio.

The utility is seeking approximately 245 MW of renewable energy from wind, solar, hydro, biomass or landfill gas facilities that would be operating by the end of 2014. Of that amount, approximately 120 MW would be operating by the end of 2012.

The notice of intent to bid this RFP is due by Jan. 21, 2011.

The RFP is part of Detroit Edison's broader efforts to expand the company’s renewable energy resources. To meet the state's renewable energy goals, Detroit Edison expects to add about 1.2 GW of renewable power.

Detroit Edison plans to provide 10% of its power from renewable resources by 2015. The company plans to own facilities to supply up to half of that power and contract with third-party producers for the rest.

Detroit Edison expects the majority of its renewable energy to come from wind resources. The company has acquired easements on more than 75,000 acres of land in Michigan’s Thumb region for development of utility-scale wind farms. The company also has two solar energy pilot programs that could produce approximately 20 MW of power.
