PepsiCo has signed two deals with Ørsted to buy a portion of electricity from the 298 MW Haystack wind farm in Nebraska and the 367 MW Western Trail wind farm in Texas.
PepsiCo will buy electricity from Haystack and Western Trail wind projects currently under construction and scheduled to come operational later this year.
“We’re excited to partner with PepsiCo in their efforts to decarbonize their operations. These PPAs at Western Trail and Haystack are another demonstration of our ability to provide customized solutions across multiple geographies to support achievement of corporate sustainability ambitions.”Vishal Kapadia, senior vice president and chief commercial officer for Ørsted Onshore.
“Sourcing renewable electricity is a critical step in our journey to more than double our science-based climate goal, reducing absolute greenhouse gas emissions by more than 40% by 2030 across our value chain, and our pledge to achieve net-zero emissions by 2040, one decade earlier than called for in the Paris Agreement. We’re proud to partner with Ørsted on two new wind projects in Texas and Nebraska this year, which will address nearly a quarter of our total U.S. electricity needs and help grow new renewable energy generation capacity in the country.”Roberta Barbieri, vice president, Global Sustainability, PepsiCo.
