August 15 (Renewables Now) - Porsche Cars North America Inc (PCNA) on Monday said its One Porsche Drive site in Georgia will be supplied with a solar power microgrid under a contract with local non-utility solar provider Cherry Street Energy LLC.
The site, which is currently undergoing an expansion, includes PCNA corporate headquarters and the Porsche Experience Center Atlanta. A significant part of its annual electricity needs will be met with the output of the solar power system, which is expected to generate 2,050 MWh a year.
The on-site solar power will also charge the all-electric Taycan fleet at the experience centre.
Cherry Street Energy will own, operate and maintain the microgrid and will sell the power to PCNA under a 25-year agreement. Construction will begin next month, with completion expected in 2023.
PCNA’s head Kjell Gruner said that the project aligns with the sustainability targets of Porsche AG, which by 2030 wants to be CO2 net neutral across the value chain and life cycle of newly-sold vehicles.
