GM Will Soon Use Wind to Power Its Factories

By Davey Alba

General Motors wants you to know that it’s thinking about the environment.

Today, the big-name car maker announced that it will soon use wind to power its manufacturing operations. GM has signed an agreement with Enel Green Power to procure 34 megawatts of wind power from 17 wind turbines for its 104-acre Toluca Complex in Mexico, the company said in a press release.

The construction of the wind farm will begin in the second quarter of 2015, and once it’s complete, 75 percent of the energy coming from the wind turbines will fulfill most of the electricity needs of the Mexico facilities.
