DTE Energy has signed a long-term agreement with Michigan based renewable energy company North American Biofuels, LLC to provide power for the company’s GreenCurrents renewable energy program.

The five year agreement with DTE Energy will enable North American Biofuels-Green Meadow Farms, LLC to construct an anaerobic digester that turns cow manure into usable electricity. The anaerobic digester will be located in Elsie (near Lansing) and became operational in November 2007.

“We are delighted to be partnering with DTE Energy to supply agricultural based renewable energy to its customers,” says Bob Evans, managing partner of North American Biofuels-Green Meadow Farms. “This project was built by the co-operative efforts of Michigan State University and North American Biofuels-Green Meadow Farms, and we hope it will serve as a model for other farm based renewable energy operations in Michigan.”

Introduced in 2007, GreenCurrents provides DTE Energy’s 2.2 million electric customers the option of choosing environmentally-friendly renewable energy for their homes and businesses.
