DTE Energy is teaming with Ford Motor Company and Domino’s Farms to build and operate the two largest solar arrays in Michigan.
DTE Energy, the largest investor in solar energy in the U.S. state, has begun construction of a 1.1 MW solar PV installation at Domino’s Farms, just east of Ann Arbor, which will be completed and operational by the end of the year.
Paul Roney, president of Domino’s Farms, said the solar installation would generate the equivalent of one-quarter of the energy consumed at Domino’s Farms each day and described it as a clean, sustainable energy solution.
As construction began on the new Domino’s Farms array, a separate solar project at Ford Motor Company’s World Headquarters in Dearborn became operational.
The 1 MW project, launched last year, provides Ford employees with 360 covered parking spaces and 30 charging stations for plug-in electric vehicles. It is the second-largest solar carport in the Midwest.
