- Signify signs its first European renewable energy virtual power purchase agreement (VPPA) in a 10-year deal with Green Investment Group’s (GIGs) Kisielice onshore wind farm in Poland
- Signify’s Polish facilities are responsible for more than 25% of its global electricity footprint
- The VPPA marks a major milestone in Signify’s commitment to become carbon neutral in 2020
Eindhoven, the Netherlands – For the next ten years, Signify (Euronext: LIGHT), the world leader in lighting, will purchase renewable energy for its operations in Poland from the Green Investment Group’s (GIG’s) Kisielice onshore wind farm.
Kisielice wind farm is a 42-megawatt (MW) project located 200 kilometers north of Warsaw and was acquired by GIG in August. It has been operational since 2014 and consists of 21 Enercon E82 turbines. The wind power sourced under the VPPA will be applied to power four of Signify’s factories and several offices throughout Poland. The VPPA helps Signify reduce its annual carbon footprint by 73 kt CO2e pa – the equivalent of removing over 23,000 cars from the road.
