Mich. regulators approve DTE Electric's build-transfer contract for wind project

The Michigan Public Service Commission on Dec. 20 cleared a contract between DTE Electric Co. and Pine River Wind Engineering LLC to build the 161.3-MW Pine River Wind Park.

Under the contract, Pine River Wind Engineering will design, construct and test the wind park in Gratiot and Isabella counties, Mich. Upon the facility's expected completion on or before Dec. 31, 2018, Pine River Wind Engineering will transfer its ownership to the DTE Energy Co. subsidiary.

DTE Electric told the PSC that approving the contract will result in lower incremental costs of compliance and a lower overall cost of service to its customers. According to the company, the installed cost for the Pine River facility is $1,615 per kW, which is less than the $2,116 per kW estimated in its September 2016 amended renewable energy plan.
