Kaiser Permanente to inject solar power into its daily rounds

Kaiser PermanenteOne of the largest not-for-profit healthcare providers in the U.S., Kaiser Permanente has announced it is to make a series of major wind and solar energy purchases as it seeks to lower its nationwide greenhouse gas emissions by 30%.

In two separate announcements, the healthcare leader revealed plans to generate as much as half of the electricity it uses in California from clean energy sources, and also confirmed it will purchase as much as 70 MW of onsite solar production from independent power producer NRG Renew.

The former announcement entails a series of power purchase agreements (PPAs) by Kaiser Permanente to support the construction and operation of three renewable energy projects that will generate 590 million kWh of clean power a year.
