General Motors understands how important it is that we all work to protect the environment and the world we live in. That is why GM is partnering with DTE Energy to help transition 500,000-megawatt hours electricity to cleaner solar energy. This is in addition to GM’s initial investment of 300,000 MWh of wind energy from February of 2019.
With this energy investment, GM has plans to supply some of its facilities with clean energy by 2023. This plan includes GM’s global headquarters, Renaissance Center in Detroit, Michigan along with other nearby facilities.
GM’s Chief Sustainability Officer Dane Parker, said, “Not only should this agreement reduce emissions in the near term, it’s a glimpse into a world with electric vehicles, built by renewable energy, and in the case of our workplace chargers, charged by a green grid too. And as we scale our EV portfolio and access to a green grid around the world, the future looks brighter than ever.”
With GM’s investment, DTE Energy was able to fund three wind parks and two new solar parks to create the renewable energy GM needs. These facilities will also provide energy to local residents and other businesses.
GM has a goal to source 100% of its energy use from renewable sources by 2030. This partnership will give the company a lot of progress.
