DTE Energy has signed an agreement with Cadillac, Mich.-based Wolverine Power Supply Cooperative Inc. to provide wind energy for the DTE's GreenCurrents renewable energy program.

Introduced last April, GreenCurrents gives DTE Energy's electric customers the option of choosing renewable energy for their homes and businesses.

Under a one-year agreement (with option for two additional years), Wolverine will provide DTE Energy with renewable energy credits from the Harvest Wind Farm located in Michigan's Thumb area. In addition to its contract with DTE Energy, Wolverine also will provide renewable energy from the Harvest Wind Farm to its member companies.

The Harvest Wind Farm, developed by John Deere Wind Energy, is Michigan's first multi-megawatt wind farm. The project consists of 32 wind turbines and Wolverine has a long-term agreement with John Deere to purchase renewable energy from the wind farm.
