Saint-Gobain North America has announced it has entered into a 12-year virtual Power Purchase Agreement (vPPA) with Invenergy. Through the vPPA with Blooming Grove Wind Farm, Saint-Gobain North America will receive renewable energy certificates (RECs) that will effectively offset CO2 emissions from electricity that powers Saint-Gobain’s U.S. operations by 40%.
This will result in a reduction of Saint-Gobain’s overall carbon footprint in the U.S. by 21%. Saint-Gobain North America has contracted 120MW of the 250MW wind farm, which was developed by Invenergy. Blooming Grove Wind Farm is in construction and is scheduled to be operational in late 2020.
