DTE Energy, a Detroit-based electric and natural gas provider, has launched its GreenCurrents program for businesses and homeowners who desire to purchase renewable energy.

Under the program, DTE Energy's Detroit Edison electricity customers can purchase a block of 100 kWh of renewable energy from solar, wind, biomass and other environmentally friendly sources for an additional $2.50 per month. The 100 kW block represents approximately 15% to 20% of an average home's monthly electric usage, the company says. Customers can choose to match 100% of their home's electricity consumption for an additional cost of two cents per kWh - or about $10 to $15 per month for a typical household.

In addition, the company is allowing business customers to purchase a 1,000 kWh block of green energy for $20 a month through the program. Business owners can match all of their electricity usage with renewable power for an additional cost of $0.02 per kWh as well.
