Clorox Signs Renewable Energy AgreementApril 29, 2022
The Clorox Co., parent company of CloroxPro™, has signed a 47-megawatt virtual power purchase agreement (VPPA) with Enel Green Power North America to purchase renewable electricity.
Under the terms of the 12-year agreement, Clorox will purchase renewable energy generated and delivered to the electricity grid from Enel Green Power’s 25 Mile Creek wind farm in Oklahoma, which is slated to be operational in 2023. Once the deal goes into effect, Enel Green Power is expected to deliver about half of the renewable electricity needed to cover Clorox’s U.S. and Canada operations. Financial terms of the agreement were not announced.
