Johnson Controls plant to go 100% green
Johnson Controls Building Technologies & Solutions has selected one of its largest facilities as the first of its plants to shift 100% its electricity to wind power. The plant, located in Wichita, KS, will source power from a wind farm currently being built near the facility. The wind farm is expected to begin delivering power by the end of 2019. Energy savings are projected to be about $2.7 million over the life of the 20-year PPA, while reducing the company’s North American GHG emissions by 18%.
“This renewable energy agreement is a win-win for the business. This plant will operate on 100% clean energy, dramatically reducing emissions and saving costs,” said Liz Haggerty, vice president and general manager, Ducted Systems, Johnson Controls, in a statement from the company. “This is a great example of Johnson Controls’ commitment to sustainability, which drives our enterprise excellence.” The company has set a goal to achieve a 25% percent reduction in global GHG emissions intensity by 2025.
The statement noted that since Johnson Controls set its first sustainability goals in 2002, the company has reduced greenhouse gas emissions from global operations by nearly half and cut energy use in U.S. manufacturing locations by 25%.
