The Clorox Company and a wholly owned subsidiary of Enel Green Power North America announced the signing of a 12 year 70 MW virtual power purchase agreement for the purchase of renewable energy beginning in 2021. Representing about half of Clorox's 100% renewable electricity goal in its operations in the US and Canada, this agreement is expected to help Clorox accelerate achieving its goal in 2021, four years ahead of the company's original plan.

The 70MW VPPA between Clorox and Enel Green Power North America for the purchase of renewable energy delivered to the electricity grid is for the second phase of Enel's Roadrunner solar project to be built in Texas. Roadrunner is a 497 MW DC solar project that is being built in two phases. The first phase, currently under construction, comprises around 252 MWdc and is expected to be completed by the end of 2019, while the remaining 245 MWdc of capacity is expected to be completed by the end of 2020. Once fully operational, the solar plant could generate up to 1.2 terawatt-hours of electricity annually, while avoiding an estimated 800,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions per year.
