Agency wants revision of DTE power generation strategy
DETROIT (AP) — A Michigan agency asked DTE Electric Co. on Thursday to revise its strategy for generating power over the next 15 years.
The state Public Service Commission requested more information about alternatives such as wind and solar projects owned by the utility or third parties. It also urged DTE to do more to help customers reduce energy waste by using efficient appliances, insulation and equipment.
The commission also urged the utility to set more ambitious energy savings goals for the next two years. DTE has proposed annual energy savings of 1.65% this year and 1.75% in 2021.
The agency called for savings of 1.75% this year and 2% in 2021.
The legal minimum is 1%.
