McDonald's Corporation and all five members of the restaurant chain's North American Logistics Council (NALC) -- Armada, Earp Distribution, Martin Brower, Mile Hi Foods and The Anderson-DuBose Company -- have signed agreements with Enel North America to purchase renewable energy and the associated renewable energy certificates (RECs) from Enel Green Power's Blue Jay solar project in Grimes County, Texas.
The combined purchase equates to 189 MW
"This innovative aggregation of a major company purchasing power jointly with its logistics partners means the electricity load of McDonald's USA's entire logistics supply chain for all its U.S. restaurants is expected to be 100% supported by renewable energy," the companies said
The Blue Jay solar project is expected to be fully operational in 2023. Once complete, McDonald's and its suppliers' combined electricity purchase is expected to amount to an estimated average of over 470,000 megawatt hours (MWh) of renewable energy annually.
The buyer aggregation was facilitated by Coho Climate Advisors.
