SC Johnson Powers Plant With Wind Power

windpower_sc_johnson.jpgSC Johnson says it will power 46 percent of its second largest North American manufacturing plant in Bay City, Michigan with wind power from Harvest Wind Farm.

The company is one of the first manufacturers in Michigan to use wind power, striking a five-year deal with Spartan Renewable Energy that will provide approximately 31.5 million kilowatt hours annually, which SC Johnson says is the maximum capacity that Spartan is able to provide.

The move lets SC Johnson reach two of its 2011 environmental goals: an eight percent absolute reduction in GHG emissions in the U.S. between 2005 and 2011 and a 12 percent absolute reduction in GHG emissions between 2000 and 2012 at all worldwide factories.

The company powers its largest global manufacturing plant with cogeneration turbines that run on natural gas and waste methane from a public landfill.

SC Johnson recently completed a transportation-logistics project that eliminated 1,882 tons of greenhouse gases over a 12 month period, used 2,098 fewer trucks, cut fuel usage by 168,000 gallons and saved approximately $1.6 million.
