General Motors is continuing its efforts to introduce more renewable energy to power its operations. The latest is a brand-new wind farm located in Northwest Ohio, 30 miles east of Fort Wayne, Indiana. The facility will power all of GM’s manufacturing operations in Ohio and Indiana.
In total, the wind farm will provide 100 megawatts worth of power for GM facilities in the area. The automaker was light on details, but added the wind farm is part of its goal to be fossil-fuel free by 2050.
GM announced in 2016 that it will move to have renewable energy power all of its global operations in the decades ahead. GM has also continuously added more landfill-free sites and invested in recycling initiatives to do its part. By 2050, wind, solar and landfill gas will be the automaker’s main source of energy.
