Saint-Gobain has signed a 10-year PPA with TotalEnergies for the purchase of solar power for its 145 industrial sites in the US and Canada.

The 200MW PPA is expected to offset Saint-Gobain’s North America CO2 emissions by 2,10,000 metric tons per year, which is a reduction of around 33%.

The agreement is expected to start at the end of 2024 and marks Saint Gobain’s second PPA agreement for North America, after signing one for a wind project in Blooming Grove, Illinois. These 2 projects combined are expected to represent a 62% reduction in Saint Gobain North America’s scope 2 emissions.

“This renewable energy project is critical to meeting Saint-Gobain’s commitment to reduce scope 1 and 2 CO2 emissions by 33% by 2030 and to reach carbon neutrality by 2050,” said Mark Rayfield, chief executive of Saint-Gobain North America.

Saint-Gobain designs, manufactures and distributes materials for the construction and industrial markets.

The company in September (2022) signed a PPA with Tion Renewables for the purchase of 191GWh of electricity per year for 15 years – starting in January 2025.

Sembcorp’s Green Infra Wind Energy in May (2022) also agreed to a long-term supply of renewable energy to Saint-Gobain India by developing a 33MW hybrid project in Tamil Nadu.

TotalEnergies is a multi-energy company which produces and markets energies including oil and biofuels, natural gas and green gases, renewables and electricity.
