GM Plants to Run on 100% Renewable Power

All of GM’s Ohio and Indiana manufacturing facilities will meet their electricity needs with 100% renewable energy by the end of 2018 according to this announcement by General Motors Corporation this week.

GM is buying a total of 200 megawatts of wind energy from Ohio and Illinois wind farms. Once the turbines come online by the end of 2018, renewable energy will power 20% of GM’s global electricity use.

The new wind deals are enough to meet the electricity needs of Fort Wayne Assembly, Marion Metal Center and Bedford Casting plants in Indiana and Lordstown Assembly, Defiance Casting Operations, Parma Metal Center and Toledo Transmission plants in Ohio.
