Stellantis Adds Solar in Michigan
Stellantis announced a commitment to add 400 MW of new solar projects in Michigan.
The solar projects will be conducted annually through DTE's MIGreenPower voluntary renewable energy program.
With its participation in MIGreenPower, Stellantis will be able to attribute 100% of its electricity use at 70 southeast Michigan sites (manufacturing and non-manufacturing) to solar by 2026, which will reduce the company's carbon emissions in North America by 50% and across its manufacturing facilities by 30%.
"While this day and this historic agreement are about clean and efficient power, I'd like to suggest that today is also about the power of partnerships in this new era of sustainable mobility," said Mark Stewart, COO, Stellantis North America, in a statement. "Our success — indeed our survival — will depend more and more on how completely we embrace the values of collaboration and partnership as strategic imperatives that help us achieve breakthrough business outcomes. This agreement is an outstanding example of how truly great companies like DTE Energy and Stellantis can unleash their passion and expertise to shape a more sustainable world for our customers and our communities."
Earlier this year, Stellantis announced aggressive goals to achieve carbon net zero globally by 2038 as part of its Dare Forward 2030 strategic plan, beginning by cutting CO2 emissions in half by the end of the decade, using 2021 metrics as the benchmark.
