General Motors is helping drive the transition to a more sustainable, cleaner energy future as the Michigan-based company signs on "to source 500,000 megawatt hours of solar energy as part of DTE’s MIGreenPower program." Along with commitments to purchasing wind energy, that brings GM's total renewable investment to more than 800,000 megawatt hours, roughly the amount of electricity used by more than 100,000 in an average year. detroit.cbslocal.com/2020/04/20/gm-dte-energy-partner-on-michigans-largest-renewable-energy-inves... ...

And these are the folks the Trump card tried to sell on lighter emission standards.

GREAT NEWS!!!!

And they are getting our tax dollars to do so. 😩

These stupid windmills that kill millions of birds a year, and those solar panels are connected to batteries, , and those do not last much more than 10 years. It takes more than one battery per panel, and batteries will cost thousands each, . You will end up costing you double maybe triple of what AC current costs and what you get out of selling it back to the electric companys will be a drop in the bucket compared to what it cost in the beginnimg

They will be out of business by 2025

In a "first-of-its-kind" move among natural gas companies, DTE Gas has pledged to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050, expanding on the commitment the local energy provider already made to reach this goal in its electric operations. By working with suppliers, improving its operations, and partnering with customers, DTE Energy is helping to build a truly sustainable, cleaner energy future for all Michigan homes and businesses. bit.ly/3dQIHLM ...

Try for sooner

Get rid of wind turbines... also environment and health issues there also ...

That long?

Wind power it doesn't work

It would be better for all of us if power companies went totally wind generators and solar power .

If you get there by 2030 we might take you seriously.

Amen 🙏

the EPA had it pretty much under control till Trump came along and really messed it up by tying the hands of the EPA like he has messed up so many other good things.

Yes I hope so

That's wonderful!!

Not fast enough

Scam

Local energy provider DTE Energy recently activated Michigan's largest batch of wind turbines at Polaris Wind Park in Gratiot County. The 68 wind turbines represent a big step toward a cleaner energy future and Polaris is just the first of four wind parks DTE Energy plans to commission this year. www.freep.com/story/news/local/michigan/2020/04/23/dte-energy-windmills-wind-turbines-polaris/300... ...

Such a big step in the right direction! THANK YOU! KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!

I LOVE THESE WIND MILLS THEY RUN VERY QUITE WHEN THE WIND ISN'T BLOWING THEY STILL GO AROUND THEY HELP WITH YOUR ELECTRICITY .

They don’t take as much space as solar panels and don’t heat the air around them. I proposed domed circular cities to take up less space and cut our energy use by 75%. That was back in the 70s before global warming. It was cooling then. It would also give jobs to thousands of people. Shopping centers within one half mile and electric trams for travel. Ray Hackman

Gotta love it ! 💗💗💗💗

Great things are happening

Should we not be receiving a break or a reduction in D T E charges ?🤣😃😆

They ruined the natural beauty... scrap them

Hay but that kill the birds. That never say how many. And we me them

Tear um down ... bad for environment and health

Great job. Now how about lowering the bills?

What makes them work with no wind? Long term, not fiscally responsible. They're not cheaper than traditional energy

There's not much choir here.

The next step of storage excess power from wind turbines is also on the way..

Taxpayer Ripoff!

Ten of those going up within 5 miles of my house. Old farmers dying and their city clicker kids selling off farm land

Appears that money is all that drives any and all enterprises.

Taxpayer Ripoff!

They kill birds

There was a post concerning numbers of birds & insects being killed by these wind turbines. It suddenly vanished... As this most likely will.

always check things out--

Went by Ludington Windfarm today around Noon. 89 degrees and barely enough breeze to turn them. Luckily for those being served, enough NG generated power to keep all those AC's running is still available.

That’s all?!?!?! Then that’s not a good deal....

Peak or average?

You’re not worried about all the cancer these things are going to cause? Lol

Awesome
