Working cooperatively with the City of Detroit, the Greater Detroit Resource Recovery Authority, the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 324, Utility Workers Union of America, AFL, CIO Local 223, and The Detroit Edison Company (Detroit Edison), Detroit Renewable Energy has attracted $50 million in new investment to the city to upgrade and optimize the system's performance and environmental benefits.
