General Motors has signed a power purchase agreement with the TVA for 100 MW of electricity as part of its plan to power its manufacturing facility in Spring Hill, Tennessee with 100% renewable energy by 2022. The PPA will use one half of the total output from a 200 MW solar power plant being built in Columbus, Mississippi as part of the TVA Green Invest program. The utility has been late getting out of the starting blocks when it comes to the renewable energy revolution, but better late than never, as the saying goes.

The agreement with the TVA is expected to help boost GM’s use of renewable energy to more than 50% of its sourced electricity by 2023, moving GM closer to its goal of getting all of its electricity from renewables in the United States by 2030 at GM-owned sites, according to the Chattanooga Times Free Press. “Our commitment to renewable energy is part of our vision of a world with zero emissions,” said Dane Parker, GM chief sustainability officer. “We’re committed to using our scale and relationships to increase renewable energy demand and availability.”
