DTE Energy Company
Duke Energy’s Renewable Energy Monitoring Center uses powerful and secure technology to increase the performance and reliability of DTE’s seven wind parks totaling 400 megawatts. The fully operational wind projects consist of 247 1.6- and 1.7-MW GE turbines. The projects began operation in 2013, and Duke Energy entered into a five-year service agreement to operate and maintain DTE’s seven wind parks located in Gratiot, Sanilac and Huron counties, Mich., in February 2016.
“DTE Energy is Michigan’s largest investor in renewable energy, and wind energy accounts for 95 percent of our renewable portfolio,” said Dave Harwood, DTE Energy’s director of renewable energy. “Wind energy plays a key role in delivering reliable, affordable and clean energy to DTE customers. We are confident that the expertise and knowledge Duke Energy Renewable Services brings to our team will help us further optimize our wind park operations.”
