Correction: DTE-Renewable Power story

February 25, 2019

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — In a story Feb. 21 about DTE Electric Co.’s renewable power program being approved, The Associated Press, relying on information from the Michigan Public Service Commission, reported erroneously the subscription fee amount that will be paid by those who want to use wind exclusively. It’s 5.2 cents per kilowatt hour, not 2.3 cents.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Michigan regulators approve DTE renewable power program

The Michigan Public Service Commission has approved a DTE Electric Co. program that lets residential and small commercial customers designate how much of the power they use will come from renewable sources

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — The Michigan Public Service Commission has approved a DTE Electric Co. program that lets residential and small commercial customers designate how much of the power they use will come from renewable sources.

The commission accepted a revised version of DTE’s MIGreenPower plan Thursday.

Regulators had ordered the company to make changes last October because of concerns about costs for marking and administration, customer options, an enrollment cap and other issues.

Under the revised program, customers who want their electricity generated by wind and solar resources will pay a subscription fee of 7.2 cents per kilowatt hour.

Those who want to use wind exclusively will pay a subscription fee of 5.2 cents per kilowatt hour.

DTE will submit biennial reports enabling the commission to review the costs.
