DTE Energy (DTE) is accepting applications for the third offering of its expanded SolarCurrents solar power pilot program, which offers customers a way to install solar photovoltaic systems on their homes and businesses.
The expansion of the SolarCurrents program has added 2 MW of capacity in four offerings through 2014. A fifth offering in 2015 may take place for the capacity left over from the first four offerings.
DTE Energy electric customers interested in participating in the third offering must submit their applications online by 5 p.m. February 13. If the number of applications exceeds the available capacity, a random selection process will be conducted February 27 to determine which projects will be included in the program.
The deadline for project completion is January 5, 2015. Projects can range in size from 1 to 20 kW. In this offering, a total of 1,000 kW are available — 750 kW for residential projects and 250 kW for non-residential projects.
