Boeing and the Salt River Project utility have signed a multi-year agreement to power Boeing’s Mesa site with renewable solar energy. Boeing will be one of several companies to receive power from SRP’s soon-to-be-built 100-megawatt solar photovoltaic plant in Eloy in Arizona. Boeing’s Mesa site will receive about 25% of its electricity needs from this plant over the next 15 years. This supports the company’s overall goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 25% by 2025, and ultimately power operations with 100% renewable energy.

SRP’s 700-acre Eloy plant is expected to begin operation in December 2021. Located approximately 50 miles from the plant is Boeing’s Mesa site. The Mesa site produces Apache helicopters and houses various corporate, commercial and defense teams in more than 40 buildings. Boeing employs more than 4,600 people in Arizona, with most based in Mesa.

This agreement expands Boeing’s leadership in the use of renewable energy and energy efficiency. Two Boeing sites Renton in Washington, and Charleston in South Carolina use 100% renewable energy today. The company is also ranked 17th on the EPA’s Green Power Partnership Fortune 500 Partners List, and has been named an EPA ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year for 10 years running.
