Danone North America signs renewable energy deal with Enel

Danone North America has signed a 12-year renewable energy power purchase agreement (PPA) with Enel’s green subsidiary, as part of its 2030 renewable goals. Enel Green Power North America has started operations of its 500mW high lonesome wind farm in Upton and Crockett Counties, in Texas. The US company has said the plant will generate around 1.9 tW per hour annually and avoid the emission of more than 1.2 million tonnes of C02 per year. The deal has resulted in an additional 50 mW expansion of Enel’s wind farm, increasing the total capacity to 500 MW and a plant worth $720 million. The wind farm marks Enel’s largest operational wind project in the group’s global renewable portfolio. According to the companies, the agreement will provide enough electricity to produce the equivalent of almost 800 million cups of yogurt and over 80 million gallons of milk each year.
