Origis Energy Announces 61 MW Solar Project in Texas in Support of DSM RE100 Goals
MIAMI, Fla., (April 22, 2020) – Origis Energy announced a large-scale virtual power purchase agreement (VPPA) with Royal DSM, a global science-based company active in Nutrition, Health and Sustainable Living, for renewable electricity from the new Rockhound Solar C project. Once constructed, the 61 MW solar facility will be located in Ector County, TX. Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) from the solar farm will support DSM’s RE100 goals.
As a member of the RE100 initiative, DSM has a goal to source 100% renewable electricity for its global operations. Led by The Climate Group in partnership with CDP, RE100 brings together the world’s most influential companies committed to 100% renewable power.
“This is the large step forward, representing approximately 40% of our total purchased electricity volume in the USA. A significant deal for DSM, in our journey to our commitment of sourcing 75% of our global electricity demand from renewable resources by 2030. We are excited to continue this journey with this Origis partnership, accelerating the transformation to renewable energy. This is another example of how we actively look for collaborations to reduce GHG emissions and reach a low-carbon world for all.” – Harry Coorens, Vice President DSM Procurement Sustainability comments.
