Meijer announced on Thursday that it has signed a renewable energy power purchase agreement with developer Duke Energy Sustainable Solutions that will remove more than 100,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide from its operations.
The solar energy project just broke ground in Navarro County, Texas, and is slated to be finished by the end of 2022. With the agreement, the Midwest retailer has signed onto buying a portion of the energy generated from the project for its first 15 years of operation.
Meijer said the project with Duke Energy is the first of “multiple strategic partnerships” for the retailer to achieve its carbon reduction goal.
