Home Depot recently purchased 100MW of solar energy from National Grid Renewables at its solar and storage project in Denton County, TX. This electricity will generate the approximate equivalent of nearly 8% of The Home Depot’s total electricity usage, according to the press release. The solar farm is National Grid Renewables’ largest solar energy project to date, and its first utility-scale energy storage project.
Home Depot plans to produce or procure 100% renewable electricity equivalent to the electricity needs for all of its facilities by 2030, expanding the company’s previous commitment to produce or procure 335MW of renewable or alternative energy by 2025.
Ron Jarvis, Home Depot’s chief sustainability officer, said in the press release. “With this purchase, we are getting a step closer to our goal to produce or procure 100% renewable electricity equivalent to the needs of our facilities. We anticipate about three-quarters of our alternative and renewable energy capacity will come from solar energy by the end of 2023.”
Noble is a 275MW solar and 125 megawatt-hour (MWh) energy storage project located in the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT).
