Mercedes Benz has announced Europe’s first automotive Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with a Polish wind farm. It is also the first such deal signed in Poland. Mercedes Benz will buy electricity generated at the 45MW wind farm to power its manufacturing facility in Jawor, 10km away from the wind farm.
The longer-term goal is to source all of its power needs from renewables. The Taczalin wind farm has been operational since 2013. The operator is VSB Energie Odnawialne Polska. Poland’s renewable energy scheme allows renewable energy suppliers to sell their electricity either on the market or as part of a PPA.
