Truck plant is GM’s 18th facility to use solar power at operations
While many spent December putting up lights on Christmas trees, our assembly plant in Indiana was installing an entirely different lighting project: a 100-foot-long, 14.4 kilowatt ground-mounted solar array
Fort Wayne Assembly, which builds the GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado, finished construction of its first solar array last month.
San Francisco, March 27, 2014 /3BL Media/ - Center for Resource Solutions (CRS) today announced that Renewable Choice Energy, a retail carbon offset and renewable energy company based in Boulder, Colorado, has begun offering Green-e Climate certified carbon offsets. The offsets will be sourced from landfill gas projects registered with the Climate Action Reserve.
We caught up with Rob Threlkeld, our global manager of renewable energy, after he spoke at our Orion Assembly plant on Wednesday.
Rob was in Orion to announce GM’s investment of $24 million for generation equipment to create electricity from landfill gas at our Orion and Ft. Wayne assembly plants. It would allow GM to become the first automaker in North America to generate its own electricity and increase the use of landfill gas, a renewable source of energy.
Rob was nice enough to give us a few minutes of his time to explain the investment.
