Kohler Co. announces 100-megawatt wind power investment

Kohler Co. on Mar. 6 announced a 15-year agreement to purchase 100 megawatts of wind power per year from the Diamond Vista wind farm located near Salina, Kansas. The electricity purchased from this project is equal to Kohler’s total U.S. and Canadian annual demand.

"This project is one component of a comprehensive strategy Kohler has created to achieve its overall goal of being 'Net Zero' in greenhouse gas emissions by 2035," said Rob Zimmerman, director of sustainability at Kohler Co. in a statement. "In addition to this investment, we will continue to drive energy efficiency in our manufacturing processes, buildings, and truck fleet; install onsite renewable energy projects; test and implement new manufacturing technologies, and develop new products and materials that require less energy to make."

Enel Green Power North America will construct the project this year and will be the long-term owner and operator of the nearly 300 MW wind project. The project is expected to begin operations by the end of this year.
