Invenergy announced that it has signed a 120 MW wind power purchase agreement (PPA) with 3M to provide the global science-based company with renewable energy to help support its operations across North America.
The agreement with 3M includes the sale of wind energy from the Gunsight Wind Energy Center located in Texas. Energy from the 120 MW project will be delivered into the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) regional electricity grid. With the addition of Gunsight, Invenergy will operate more than 1,700 MW of power plants in the state.
In January, Invenergy announced a 225 MW wind power purchase agreement with Google to provide the multinational technology giant with renewable energy to help support all of its data centers worldwide. Google first announced this deal in November at theCOP21 conference in Paris. And in late 2015, Invenergy also announced two separate wind power purchase agreements with Equinix, Inc. and another Fortune 500 corporation to provide the companies with renewable energy to support their ambitious corporate sustainability goals. Each of those agreements, along with the PPA with 3M, brings Invenergy's total corporate customer renewable energy portfolio to 570 MW.
As a signatory to the American Business Act on Climate Pledge, Invenergy is dedicated not only to meeting its own sustainability goals, but to helping its corporate customers achieve their goals. Invenergy is also a founding member of Rocky Mountain Institute's Business Renewables Center, which is a collaborative platform aimed at accelerating corporate renewable energy procurement.
