GM Demonstrates Strong Commitment to Solar Energy

GM Demonstrates Strong Commitment to Solar Energy

Jon Lauckner, President of GM Ventures, sees this as a strategic business decision, stating that global solar energy is predicted to more than double by 2016. In line with this projection, GM is committing to double its own solar output at its facilities, from 30 megawatts today to 60 megawatts by the end of 2015 – enough to power 10,000 homes annually. Already, GM states, the company is the leading user of renewable energy in the automotive sector, boasting three of the largest roof-top solar installations in the USA, as well as the largest roof-top solar installation in the world in Zaragoza, Spain. GM says it meets 1.4% of its U.S. energy consumption from renewable sources today.
