65 MW of power produced by the Roadrunner solar facility will be sold to the snack company Mondelez International and 70 MW to bleach-making company Clorox Co. under power purchase agreements (PPA).
This PPA is Mondelez International’s largest renewable energy partnership and allows the company to make significant progress in achieving its goal of reducing carbon emissions from manufacturing by 15 percent by 2020.
The PPA with Clorox Co. makes up about half of the company’s 100 percent renewable energy goal in its U.S. and Canada operations. This PPA is expected to help Clorox reach its renewable energy goal in 2021, four years ahead of the company’s original plan.
Enel Green Power has approximately 6 gigawatts of solar and wind capacity operating in 18 states across the U.S. and one province in Canada. The company owns and operates more than 70 plants and manages a capacity of more than 6 GW in hydro, wind, geothermal, and solar energy.
