GM Takes Lead in Solar Energy Use With Solar Array at Corvette Plant
DURAND, Mich. –– GM is taking the lead in solar energy use with a solar array at its Corvette plant, according to the Solar Means Business report put out by the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA).
General Motors will continue to break ground in renewable energy use by investing in an 850-kilowatt array at the Bowling Green assembly, home of the Chevrolet Corvette, in Kentucky. This will be the largest installation by any automaker in Kentucky, and will generate enough energy to make 850 Corvettes annually. In turn, the Corvette features the greatest efficiency of any sports car on the market with an EPA-estimated 29 mpg highway.
Not only will GM break ground in Kentucky, but also at its Rochester Operations facility in New York with a 466-kilowatt array, and at its Warren Transmission plant in Michigan with a 800-kilowatt array in partnership with DTE Energy in the next several months.
The company will hold an industry-leading 11.4 megawatts of solar arrays throughout its 16 U.S. facilities, generating nearly 15 million kilowatt hours of energy instead of creating carbon emissions from burning 11 million pounds of coal.
Renewable energy is something important to GM, and that's clear as the automaker takes the lead in solar energy use with a solar array at its Corvette plant.
