On September 13, 2017, Anheuser-Busch and Enel Green Power announced that they have signed a power purchase agreement (PPA), whereby Anheuser-Busch would purchase the energy delivered to the grid and renewable electricity credits from a portion of EGP’s Thunder Ranch wind project, in the amount of 152.5 MW.
Per the company, the wind energy partnership between EGP and Anheuser-Busch would be the beer company’s first contracted utility-scale project to start operations in the world once the Thunder Ranch wind farm becomes operational, which is expected by the end of 2017.
João Castro Neves, president and CEO of Anheuser-Busch, commented:
As we strive to bring people together to build a better world, we at Anheuser-Busch are dedicated to reducing our carbon emissions. Helping to grow the renewable energy market is not only good for the environment, it is a strategic business move as we strive for long-term sustainability. Now more than ever, we are excited to lead our company’s global effort toward a renewable future and, partnering with Enel, set an industry example of how major companies can help to make a difference in climate change.
