DTE, University of Michigan agree to renewable-energy purchase program

Updated: Jun 22, 2020

The University of Michigan has committed to purchase 200,000 megawatts renewable energy — estimated at half its total purchased energy for the university’s Ann Arbor campus — from DTE Energy Co. starting in 2021, the energy company and university announced Tuesday.

DTE will provide the renewable energy through the company’s MIGreenPower program and from Michigan-sourced renewable-power resources, the company said.

“Reducing the greenhouse gas footprint of electricity that U-M purchases was a key recommendation made by members of our campus community,” university President Mark Schlissel said in a statement. “This agreement will help us achieve our existing (greenhouse gas) reduction goal, and is an important step on our university’s road to carbon neutrality.”
