Wind, Biomass Fuel Michigan’s The Ark

John Davis

The ArkA concert venue in Michigan is using various forms of renewable energy when it puts on a show. The Ark has partnered with DTE Energy and is operating on DTE’s GreenCurrents renewable energy program.

November will be Green Energy month at The Ark. During November, all electricity used at the concert venue will be offset by renewable power provided under DTE Energy. Additionally, anyone who enrolls in GreenCurrents at The Ark in November will receive a free music CD, or a ticket to an upcoming Ark performance.

DTE EnergyGreenCurrents is a voluntary program that enables DTE Energy’s electric customers to “green up” their power with renewable energy created from sustainable sources like the wind and biomass. For as little as $2.50 extra a month, GreenCurrents customers can help improve the environment and support the development of new renewable energy projects in Michigan.

Located in Ann Arbor, The Ark is a non-profit organization that hosts more than 300 live performances a year, including 28 shows that are scheduled for November. Green Energy month at The Ark will kick off Oct. 30 with a free concert featuring Detroit band Zebula Avenue.
