Clorox Signs VPPA
The Clorox Company is supporting its commitment to 100% renewable electricity in the U.S. and Canada through two VPPAs.
The manufacturer of consumer and professional products, signed a 12-year virtual power purchase agreement (VPPA) to purchase 47 MW of energy from Enel Green Power’s 25 Mile Creek Wind Farm, Oklahoma, beginning in 2023.
This is the second VPPA Clorox has entered with Enel Green Power, following a 12-year agreement executed in 2021 for 70 MW from the Roadrunner Solar Project in Texas.
Its first VPPA in 2021 was a 12-year agreement to procure a 70 MW portion of Enel Green Power’s Roadrunner Solar Project in Texas which covered about half of its electricity needs at the time.
Clorox's renewable electricity goal supports progress toward its 2030 science-based targets to reduce GHG emissions and 2050 commitment to net zero emissions.
"We know taking action on the climate crisis is necessary to ensure the well-being of our stakeholders, our planet and our long-term success as a company,” said Michael Ott, Clorox’s head of sustainability, in a statement. “As we live up to our purpose to champion people to be well and thrive every single day, contributing to a clean world is a must. We also know change needs to happen urgently and at scale. That’s why we are committing to large, multi-year renewable energy projects to help drive the transition to a more sustainable energy system.”
