GM Lauded by Solar Energy Industries Association

general_motorsThe latest Solar Means Business report from the Solar Energy Industries Association ranks General Motors as the top user of solar energy in the automotive industry, according to the car manufacturer. The press release also said that the company is 20th in use of solar of all companies in the United States.

The release discusses GM’s 850 KW solar array at its Bowling Green, KY Assembly, the home of the Corvette. The installation will start this month. It will generate 1.2 million kWh of energy annually. General Motors has 48 MW of solar generation spread across its 22 facilities worldwide. In the U.S., it has 11.4 MW of solar capacity across 16 facilities.

BMW is using biogas in its Rosslyn, South Africa plant, which is about 50 miles northwest of Pretoria. The car maker has a 10-year contract with Bio2Watt to generate as much as 4.4 MW of electricity from biogas produced in the fiends around the plant. The news initially was reported by Bloomberg and posted at Renewable Energy World.
