DTE Energy has announced that its Pine River wind farm located in Gratiot and Isabella counties is operational. With 65 turbines, Pine River is the largest operating wind farm in Michigan as well as DTE's most cost-effective and cost-efficient wind project to date.

"DTE was among the first energy companies in the nation to announce a broad sustainability initiative consistent with what scientists say is necessary to address climate change globally and do it in a way that maintains affordability and reliability for our customers," said Gerry Anderson, chairman and CEO, DTE Energy. "Bringing Pine River online is helping us meet the commitment we've made to our customers while contributing to the health of Michigan's economy. It is our next step in continuing the fundamental transformation of the way we generate power in Michigan, while maintaining our focus on reliability and affordability."

Since 2009, DTE has driven investments of more than $2.8 billion in renewable energy, and the company will invest an additional $2 billion in renewables over the next five years as it more than doubles its capacity in wind and solar. By 2022, DTE will generate enough energy from renewable resources to power more than 800,000 homes.
