Kaiser Permanente to Purchase 50% of Its Energy Use from Renewable Energy

February 2015 - Kaiser Permanente has signed deals to purchase enough renewable energy to provide half of the electricity it uses in California beginning in 2016. The company has agreed to support the construction and operation of three new renewable energy projects that will generate approximately 590 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity annually. More specifically, Kaiser will buy electricity from Golden Hills wind farm at Altamont Pass in Southern California under a 20-year agreement. In a separate deal, Kaiser agreed to purchase 110 megawatts (MW) from NextEra's Blythe solar plant in Riverside County. The company also signed a deal with NRG Energy to install both rooftop and ground-mounted solar photovoltaic (PV) systems at 170 of its facilities in California.
