Comments:I support the comments regarding DTE's green currents program, submitted by David Wright of the Ecology Center. There should be full transparency by DTE as to the expenditures of the Green Currents program, i.e. just what is my purchase of Green Currents funding? Advertising? Actual purchase of wind or solar, or merely RECs? Only when there is full transparency, will publication of actual revenues and expenditures will there be confidence that Green Currents is truly a choice of renewable energy. In addition, it is important for me as a citizen of Detroit to know if DTEs Green Currents is considering energy from the Detroit municipal incinerator, as 'renewable.' I do not want to support that, and as a consumer I do not know.
