Kimberly-Clark leases land for Georgia Power solar project
Kimberly-Clark announced Feb. 26 the completion of a 3 MW solar project at their facility in LaGrange, Ga., of which all the output and associated credits will be solar to Georgia Power to advance their renewable energy development goals.
The 8,600-panel solar project was constructed on Kimberly-Clark’s property by United Renewable Energy and will be owned long-term by NextEra Energy Resources. While Kimberly-Clark leased the land that the project was built on, they will also offset their own emissions through a separate agreement to purchase RECs from NextEra.
"The development of this project and our purchase of RECs provide the most recent examples of how we demonstrate our commitment to renewable energy," Jeremy Cannady, mill manager at Kimberly-Clark's LaGrange facility, said in a statement. "The project is a source of pride for LaGrange employees, and purchasing RECs from NextEra Energy Resources helps us strive towards our global goal of a 40% offset in greenhouse gas emissions by 2022."
