Detroit Edison has issued a request for proposals (RFP) to purchase one or more large solar photovoltaic installations as part of its SolarCurrents program, which calls for the generation of 15 MW of photovoltaic electricity throughout southeastern Michigan by 2015.

The utility is seeking solar PV installations between 500 kW and 2 MW.

The RFP will be conducted in two phases. The first phase will identify potential sites, and the second will seek design and pricing information for the most desirable sites.

Solar installations proposed in response to the RFP must be in Detroit Edison's service area, and current owners of property must be full-service bundled electric customers. Preference will be given to projects in Detroit.

Detroit Edison already owns and operates a number of large solar installations, including projects at Monroe County Community College, General Motors' Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly Plant, Ford Motor Co.'s Wayne Assembly Plant and Blue Cross Blue Shield. The company also has several projects on DTE Energy property.
