Spotlight on Renewable Energy in Michigan

The Farbman Group—one of Michigan’s leading commercial real estate firms based in Southfield—recently committed to investing in MIGreenPower, DTE Energy’s voluntary green pricing program.

According to Farbman Group CEO Andrew Farbman, the company takes pride in being among the first group of major businesses to invest in the program, as it will help result in “a significantly reduced carbon footprint through wind and solar energy generated right in our own backyard.”

As you’ll recall, voluntary green pricing programs like MIGreenPower—one of the nation’s largest—allow Michigan homes and businesses to pay a little more each month in order to have a certain percentage of their electricity generated by renewable energy resources.

As a commercial real estate firm, the Farbman Group owns and operates hundreds of buildings across Michigan and is seeking to reduce its environmental impact. By joining MIGreenPower, the company is able to lower their carbon footprint while helping to secure a cleaner, more sustainable energy future for all Michiganders.

The Farbman Group is just one of several Michigan-based businesses or institutions that has joined MIGreenPower. Others include Ford, General Motors, the University of Michigan, and the Detroit Zoo.

The support and participation of Michigan-based businesses and residents in voluntary green pricing programs like MIGreenPower is critical not only to their success, but to our state’s ability to secure a cleaner energy future without threatening reliability, affordability, or fairness for anyone.
