100% of the electricity use at three Hollingsworth locations will be attributed to renewable energy
Detroit, Jan. 25, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DTE Energy (NYSE: DTE) and Hollingsworth, a value-added third-party logistics business for manufacturing and distribution companies across the United States, today announced Hollingsworth’s enrollment in DTE’s MIGreenPower program.
MIGreenPower enables DTE Electric customers to attribute more of their energy use to the company’s wind and solar parks and is now one of the top three voluntary renewable energy programs in the country. Hollingsworth has enrolled three Metro Detroit locations in the program, totaling 4,000 megawatt hours annually. This has the environmental benefit equivalent to avoiding the greenhouse gas emissions from 616 passenger vehicles driven for one year.*
