General Motors to purchase 100 MW of solar energy to power Spring Hill

General Motors’ (GM) Spring Hill Manufacturing plant is expected to be powered by 100% solar energy by late 2022.

The green tariff agreement with Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) will supply up to 100 MW of solar energy annually, according to the company. The energy will be supplied by a solar farm in Lowndes County, Mississippi, under development by Origis Energy.

The commitment is made through TVA’s Green Invest program, which is the federal electric utility’s green tariff solution.

The project is expected to increase GM’s renewable energy use to more than 50% by 2023, moving closer to the company’s goal of sourcing 100% renewable electricity at U.S. GM-owned sites by 2030.

Spring Hill Manufacturing is the largest GM facility in North America, totaling 2,100 acres, 700 acres which are dedicated to farming. 100 acres are dedicated to wildlife habitat and have received a Gold recognition and certification from the Wildlife Habitat Council.

“Our commitment to renewable energy is part of our vision of a world with zero emissions,” said Dane Parker, GM chief sustainability officer. “We’re committed to using our scale and relationships to increase renewable energy demand and availability.”

Jeff Lyash, TVA president and CEO added, “Moving forward, large-scale solar installations provide the best value for our customers to help meet their sustainability goals which makes Green Invest a win for everyone.”
