Corporate interest in utility-scale renewable energy is heating up. According to CleanTechnica, six Fortune 500 companies reached purchase agreements for solar and wind power in 2015. Hopefully we are witnessing a race for renewable energy megawatts. The results so far -
These six companies ordered a total 710 megawatts of renewable energy this year, which by a current average of 164 homes/MW is enough to power approximately 116,000 homes. Three of the companies are in the technology industry, one in the auto industry, and one in healthcare. The current leader, Dow Chemical, is in the chemical industry.
Hearty congratulations to these companies for leading the way!
The year is still young. It’s time to hear from other Fortune 500 companies.
