DTE Energy is issuing an RFP to add up to 850 MW of wind and solar projects in Michigan.

According to the RFP, approximately 300 MW of projects would need to be ready for commercial operation by March 31, 2025, with about 550 MW ready by March 31, 2026. Projects would be located in Michigan and interconnected to the Midcontinent Independent System Operator (MISO) or distribution level transmission.

Bids are due April 21, 2023, and the utility anticipates executing contracts this Fall. 

This solicitation is part of the company’s broader Integrated Resource Plan (IRP), which calls for more than 15,000 MW of renewables and an additional 1,800 MW of storage by 2042. 

Right now, DTE currently has 18 wind and 33 solar plants throughout Michigan.
