GM gains more wind power in Ohio
General Motor’s latest source of wind energy was officially opened on Oct. 8 at Northwest Ohio Wind, a 105-megawatt project that will generate clean energy for General Motors for at least the next 15 years.
"Renewable energy is an important part of GM's vision for a zero-emissions future," said Rob Threlkeld, Global Manager of Renewable Energy for General Motors, in a statement. "Working with CMS Energy's Northwest Ohio Wind farm, along with the HillTopper Wind Project in Illinois, we'll soon power all of our manufacturing facilities in Ohio and Indiana with 100 percent clean wind energy."
"We at CMS Energy are committed to our Triple Bottom Line of People, Planet and Prosperity, and we're excited to start generating clean energy that will help General Motors meet long-term goals to protect the planet," said DV Rao, Senior Vice President of Strategy for CMS Energy, a subsidiary of CMS Enterprises,which owns the Northwest Wind Farm.
Northwest Ohio Wind is expected to generate about 320,000 megawatt-hours of renewable energy per year. RECs from the project are committed to General Motors as part of a 15-year PPA, which will help offset carbon emissions from seven Midwestern General Motors plants.
