Toyota Boshoku America Adds Illinois Solar

Toyota Boshoku America, Inc. (TBA), a global automotive supplier, announced the addition of a 5,650-kWdc solar energy project to power operations at the Toyota Boshoku Illinois, LLC (TBIL) plant in Lawrenceville, Illinois.

The company will partner with Sol Systems, a national renewable energy solutions provider, and Onyx Renewable Partners L.P., a provider of distributed clean energy options.

The project will sit on approximately 17 acres near the TBIL facility and is scheduled for completion in late 2024. It is projected to produce over 9,500,000 kilowatt-hours in the first year of production, fulfilling more than 85% of TBIL’s annual electricity needs. 

“We are extremely proud to announce this partnership with Sol Systems and Onyx Renewables,” said Ryan Hunt, Vice President at Toyota Boshoku America, in a statement. “Protecting the environment is one of our company’s core values. Through our decarbonization efforts, we are also committed to increasing the total amount of renewable energy available throughout the regions in which we operate. Today’s announcement is a tangible reflection of those commitments and will help us move closer to our goal of a carbon-free company in the future.”
