Toyota Goes With Green Power In Plano
Toyota Motors North America, which is setting up its new headquarters in Plano, is going with the green option on its power, according to power provider MP2 Energy. MP2 Energy said it has been awarded a five year, retail electricity contract with Toyota Motors North America to provide 100 percent, renewable energy to the new site. MP2 Energy said that the deal includes 7.75 MW of on-site solar generation, with the remaining energy purchased from 100 percent renewable sources, including Texas wind and offsite solar farms. Financial details of that deal were not announced by MP2 Energy. Toyota said it would be moving its North American headquarters to Plano last year. The new headquarters covers approximately 2.1 million square feet. Photo: Unveiling of Toyota's design last year, via Toyota.
