Solar energy sources

PV solar power - Era-Energy has started to present local, national and global companies developing, exploring and promoting renewable energy sources. More »

The Earth energy and the beauty

The Earth energy sources - Earth’s energy comes from the original formation of the planet and from radioactive decay of minerals. The geothermal gradient, which is the difference in temperature between the core of the planet and its surface, drives a continuous conduction of thermal energy in the form of heat from the core to the surface.

The power of the water

Hydropower, hydroelectric power or water power is power that is derived from the force or energy of flowing or falling water, which may be harnessed for useful purposes. More »

The power of the wind

The wind power is the ability of air movement to do work. Today, wind energy turbines are used mainly for production of electricity. It is a clean and renewable energy source that can produce enough electricity to power huge areas. More »

The invisible power

The energy of the wind is invisible and so powerful that has allowed humans to exploit the surface of the planet long before the discovering of electricity. More »

Midwestern renewable energy companies at – Michigan

Era-Energy continues to present US companies from the Midwest – local and national; small, family owned or large corporations, all they developing, exploring and promoting renewable energy sources and the practical implementation of that green power in our lives. Developers, installers and other renewable energy companies in Michigan are now listed on the State’s local page. On US National Renewable energy developers’ page are shown, in a progressivly growing list, many of the companies working on a level of more than 5 states.

According to data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration, Michigan is among the leading states when it comes to energy generated from the wind. Renewable energy sources generated about 11% of Michigan’s total in-state electricity, including small-scale (less than one megawatt), net generation in 2020. Though it is known as the Great Lakes State, Michigan’s hydroelectrical generation was surpassed by wind power in 2013.

Michigan enacted a renewable energy standard (RES) in 2008 that required the state’s retail electricity providers, including investor-owned electric utilities, alternative retail suppliers, electric cooperatives, and municipal electric utilities, to obtain at least 10% of the electricity they sold from renewable energy resources by 2015. The RES goal was met, and, in December 2016, the state’s RES requirement increased to 15% of electricity sales by 2021.114 Acceptable renewable energy resources for generating electricity include solar power, biomass, wind, geothermal energy, municipal solid waste, landfill gas, existing hydroelectricity, and tidal, wave, and river currents. The updated RES allows utilities to use energy efficiency to meet a portion of their requirements.
