Saint-Gobain signs major solar PPA with TotalEnergies in the U.S.

The company is committed to reduce scope 1 and 2 CO2 emissions by 33% by 2030 and to reach carbon neutrality by 2050.

Mark Rayfield, CEO of Saint-Gobain North America, said: “With this agreement, Saint-Gobain North America will dramatically reduce its CO2 emissions while sending a strong signal to the market that the manufacturing industry is ready to commit to green electricity.”

Marc-Antoine Pignon, Managing Director, TotalEnergies Renewables USA said: “Our ambition in the U.S. is to become a key partner for corporate players committed to achieving carbon neutrality by offering them innovative and cost-effective renewable solutions to decarbonize their electricity consumption.”

This 200 MW PPA is expected to offset Saint-Gobain’s North American carbon emissions from electricity by 210,000 Metric Tons per year.

This is the second PPA signed in North America by Saint-Gobain, the first one being a wind project in Illinois, United States. The two projects combined are expected to represent a 62% reduction in Saint-Gobain North America’s carbon emissions from electricity.

The agreement is expected to take effect at the end of 2024.
