EDF Energy Services creates a wind and solar renewable solution for Baker Hughes
EDF Energy Services, LLC, is delighted to assist Baker Hughes in meeting its commitment to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.
The firm’s North American retail supply and services team will provide a wind and solar solution which combines offtake from the Texas-based White Mesa Wind project, owned and developed by Apex Clean Energy, with the Talitha Solar project, owned and developed by 7X Energy. This will provide Baker Hughes with more reliable energy delivery compared to taking the offtake solely from either a wind-only or solar-only asset.
The new agreement eliminates 12% of the company’s global carbon footprint and makes their Texas operations 100% renewable.
“Our mission is to tackle energy conundrums and make it easier for businesses to achieve their efficiency and sustainability goals through innovative products and structures,” Mary Anne Brelinsky, President said. “We are excited to offer a renewable energy product that provides Baker Hughes with green power at an attractive price all within a traditional retail electricity contract.”
“We are proud to share our expertise and knowledge of the markets to help Baker Hughes navigate this environment and select an attractive renewables product that allows them to accomplish this lofty goal,” Deb Merril, President of Retail said.
EDF Energy Services recently launched their retail renewable product offering that provides a smaller slice of renewable power wrapped into the customer’s traditional retail contract. The Company manages 2,800 MW of wind and solar generation, which includes eleven sites owned by EDF Renewables.
The White Mesa Wind and Talitha Solar projects are expected to come online in 2021.
