DTE Energy customers are now benefitting from 30 wind turbines installed at DTE’s Pinnebog Wind Park in Huron County. The new project has the ability to produce 50 megawatts (MW) of clean, renewable energy – enough to power more than 22,000 homes.
DTE Energy began work on Pinnebog in early 2016, and its completion earlier this month brings the number of DTE owned or operated wind parks to 13 across Michigan. DTE now generates enough electricity from renewable sources to power more than 400,000 homes.
“DTE Energy is Michigan’s largest producer of renewable energy and among the top producers nationally,” said Irene Dimitry, vice president of Business Planning and Development, DTE Energy. “We view renewable energy as an important part of a diversified and balanced energy portfolio. Projects like this increase our renewable energy generation capacity and our ability to provide our customers with energy that is affordable, reliable and clean.”
Pinnebog Wind Park is located in Chandler, Oliver and Colfax Townships and is an expansion of the existing Echo Wind Park.
