Today’s Solutions: May 28, 2023

As we have recently seen the likes of IKEA and Google pouring a significant amount of money into renewables to decarbonize their businesses, car manufacturer Honda has recently made the largest single purchase of solar and wind power by any automaker.

Seeking to slash carbon dioxide emissions from its North American manufacturing operations, beginning of next fall, the car company will receive 530,000 MWh per year from the boiling Spring Wind Farm in Oklahoma. The purchase will cover more than 60 percent of the electricity that the firm uses on the continent.

Honda expects to offset 800,000 metric tons of CO2 emissions annually — the equivalent of 100,000 US households worth of CO2 emissions. And the company isn’t stopping there. It plans to electrify two-thirds of its vehicles by 2030 and to charge those vehicles with renewable energy.
