Enel North America announced a retail electricity supply agreement with intelligent power management company Eaton
Under the agreement, Enel will supply Eaton's Sherman, Texas, manufacturing facility with electricity, and the associated renewable energy certificates (RECs), generated by Enel's High Lonesome wind farm in West Texas to cover 100% of the facility's electricity load.
Enel also stated, "Enel plans to expand its retail energy offering into other deregulated states beyond Texas including, but not limited to, Ohio, Illinois and Pennsylvania in the near future."
"For forward-looking companies with facilities in retail choice states, such as Texas, purchasing renewable energy bundled with certified RECs directly through a retail energy supply agreement is a great, simplified option for reducing emissions," said Greg Rizzo, Head of PPA and Renewable Energy Solutions at Enel North America. "We're thrilled to expand our collaboration with Eaton and welcome them as a retail energy client, and we look forward to further supporting their sustainability efforts."
"The retail electricity supply agreement builds upon an expansive collaboration between Eaton and Enel dating back to 2016. Over the years Enel has developed microgrids and distributed energy resources, provided demand response services, advisory services, and more for Eaton. Additionally, Eaton provides engineering support and supplies hardware and equipment installed across Enel's renewable energy portfolio -- including the High Lonesome wind farm -- ensuring the generation and delivery of safe, reliable and cost-effective electricity into the Texas grid," Enel said
"We're pleased to further build upon our work with Enel as Eaton progresses toward its science-based targets and carbon neutrality," said Rich Gorzé, Global Energy Manager for Eaton. "This collaboration allows us purchase [sic] clean energy from a regional wind project while helping provide energy resilience and air quality improvements in one of the communities in which we operate."
