US medical technology giant Stryker Corp (NYSE:SYK) will source green power from Denmark-based Ørsted A/S’ (CPH:ORSTED) 200-MW Sunflower Wind project in Kansas, seeking to back its goal of using renewable electricity for all of its facilities by 2027.
Under the power purchase agreement (PPA), Stryker will procure power from 37 MW of the wind farm’s capacity, Ørsted said on Friday.
The contracted power volume will be enough to cover 75% of Stryker’s electricity consumption in North America over the next 12 years.
The Sunflower Wind park is already under construction in Kansas’ Marion County and is expected to be commissioned by 2023. Among its off-takers are organic food company Amy’s Kitchen and US lender Citizens Financial Group Inc (NYSE:CFG). The plant’s output is estimated to be more than 77,000 homes.
Stryker has already met its goal of 20% carbon reduction for all our facilities, initially set for 2024, and is seeking to become fully carbon neutral by 2030.
