Romulus — DTE Energy Co. says it’s completed new solar projects in the Detroit area and near Port Huron.

The Detroit-based utility says it has 26 utility-owned solar arrays in operation with enough generating capacity to power 2,400 homes.

The three new projects became operational in late 2015 and early this year. They include the Greenwood Energy Center in St. Clair County, the Romulus Solar Array near Detroit Metropolitan Airport and a solar array in Wayne County’s Brownstown Township.

Since 2009, DTE says it has invested more than $67 million in solar energy. DTE has four more solar projects under development, including one in Ypsilanti, one in Warren and two in Lapeer.
