BMW Factory to Use 100% On-Site Wind

Automaker BMW is to power its Leipzig, Germany, factory using wind power alone.

The company plans to build four turbines at the Leipzig facility that should provide the necessary energy by 2013, the AFP reports. BMW said that it hopes the plant can become an example of green best practice for its other factories.

In 2011 the Leipzig plant is forecast to build 200,000 cars.

In July, a BMW dealership near Vancouver became the first business in British Columbia to install a commercial-scale turbine.

The Auto West Group’s egg beater-shaped, vertical-axis turbine is the latest green addition to the dealership, which has solar panels, geothermal heating and cooling, and rooftop gardens.
