The program works to fulfill DTE Energys commitment to generate 10 percent of its energy from renewable sources by 2015. The SolarCurrents canopy project is another example of how DTE Energy and Ford are working to build a more energy-efficient and sustainable future, said Irene Dimitry, DTE Energy vice president, marketing and renewables. At the same time, this project will help us come closer to meeting Michigans renewable energy goals and diversify our energy portfolio. This is the second collaboration between Ford and DTE Energy in recent years. In 2010, the companies teamed up to install a 500-kilowatt solar photovoltaic panel system at Fords Michigan Assembly Plant in Wayne, Michigan. Energy generated by the system helps power vehicle production at the plant, where Ford Focus, Focus Electric, C-MAX Hybrid and C-MAX Energi are built.
