General Motors has long been committed to reducing its effects on the environment and making a better tomorrow for future generations. Earlier this year, it partnered with DTE Energy to help make its home state of Michigan a cleaner place.
Through this partnership, General Motors is focusing on renewable energy sources including solar and wind energy. GM committed to sourcing 500,000 megawatt hours of solar energy. This follows its investment in February 2019 of 300,000 MWh of wind energy. With these two investments, it is enough energy to power more than 100,000 homes in an average year.
This dedication to sustainable energy will help GM run all of its Southeast Michigan facilities on clean energy by 2023. This will include the global headquarters Renaissance Center in Detroit.
GM’s Chief Sustainability Officer Dane Parker, said, “Not only should this agreement reduce emissions in the near term, it’s a glimpse into a world with electric vehicles, built by renewable energy, and in the case of our workplace chargers, charged by a green grid too. And as we scale our EV portfolio and access to a green grid around the world, the future looks brighter than ever.”
This dedication to sustainability can be seen here in Gurnee, Illinois, with fuel-efficient models including the Buick Encore GX and the GMC Terrain. You can find those and many other luxurious vehicles at Anthony Buick GMC.
