Agelbert NOTE: If the following news meant that automobile manufacturers where going make more EVs with 100% renewable energy electricity, I would consider it progress. Unfortunately, these brain dead car executives will use the wind power mostly to make more polluting gas guzzlers.   Go figure.   ::)

GM to run Ohio, Indiana factories with 100 percent wind power

SEPTEMBER 21, 2017 by  GREG ALVAREZ

SNIPPET:

Last week I predicted it wouldn’t be long before we had more news on Fortune 500 wind power purchases. Well, a whole seven days passed before there were new deals to report.  ;D

WIND POWERS THE OPEN ROAD FOR GM

GM just announced wind power purchase agreements with projects in Ohio and Illinois. The automaker is buying enough wind-generated electricity to power the Ohio and Indiana factories that build the Chevrolet Cruze and Silverado, and the GMC Sierra.

“Technology is driving solutions for mobility and safety in our vehicles, as well as the new energy solutions that build them,” said Gerald Johnson, GMNA vice president of Manufacturing and Labor. “This is the way we do business: offering vehicles that serve our customers’ lifestyle needs while providing sustainable solutions that improve our communities.”

GM already has plans to soon power 100 percent of its Arlington, Texas, plant using wind, where over 100,000 SUV’s are made every year. Wind’s low cost, down 66 percent since 2009, has made it an attractive option for GM as it works toward meeting its 100 percent renewable goal.

OTHER BUYERS JUMP ON THE BANDWAGON

GM isn’t alone in the headlines this week, however. Kimberly-Clark, maker of products like Kleenex and Huggies, also announced a new wind deal in recent days. The company will soon source about 33 percent of its electricity needs from wind farms in Oklahoma and Texas.

“It’s a powerful demonstration of sustainability initiatives having both great environmental and business benefits,” said Lisa Morden, Kimberly-Clark’s global head of sustainability.
