BAY CITY, Mich. – According to the Solar Means Business report released by the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), GM is leading the race in solar energy for the automotive industry.
But not only is GM leading the race in solar energy for the automotive industry, it’s also ranked No. 20 in the top 25 solar-powered companies in the U.S. In 2013, GM joined SEIA to advocate for a better U.S. solar industry. GM has added 10 solar arrays since then and also helped launch the Business Renewables Center.
In addition to these solar arrays, GM is installing an 850-kilowatt array at their Bowling Green plant, home of the Chevrolet Corvette, in Kentucky. It will be the largest solar installation done by any car company in Kentucky. The setup will generate 1.2 million kilowatt hours of energy annually, enough to make about 850 Corvettes.
Also, in the next several months, GM has plans to add more than 2 megawatts of solar energy to its facilities. One of them will be a 466-kilowatt array at their Rochester Operations facility in New York and another will be an 800-kilowatt array at the Warren Transmission plant here in Michigan.
Overall, GM has an industry-leading 11.4 megawatts of solar arrays throughout 16 U.S. facilities. These arrays generate about 15 million kilowatt hours of energy, which eliminates about 11 million pounds of coal burned.
