Whirlpool signs wind power purchase deal

Whirlpool ramps up its investments in renewable energy as the company signed Wednesday second wind virtual power purchase agreement in the off-site clean energy.
This latest agreement with ENGIE North America will represent 53 megawatts of clean, renewable wind energy over 12 years, which would mean removing about 30,633 gasoline-powered passenger vehicles from the roads each year.
“When this VPPA with ENGIE becomes fully operational in 2023, we expect to offset 100 percent of our U.S. plant electricity emissions,” noted management.
The move comes in line with company’s commitment to reach net zero emissions in its plants and operations by 2030.
