Enel, through its US based renewable company Enel Green Power North America, has signed a 12 year virtual power purchase agreement with apparel retailer Gap Inc under which the latter will purchase the energy delivered to the grid by a 90 MW portion of Enel Green Power’s new Aurora1 wind project, currently in development in North Dakota. The wind energy supplied to Gap Inc. under the agreement is enough to power over 1,500 Gap Inc retail stores, equivalent to around 50% of the electricity needs of the more than 3,300 stores operated by Gap Inc worldwide.

The electricity output that Gap Inc is purchasing from Aurora’s 90 MW section is expected to total approximately 374 GWh each year, equivalent to avoiding the emission of 253,000 tonnes of CO2 per year.

The agreement with Enel Green Power North America will help Gap Inc. reach its 2020 goal to reduce its Scope 1 and Scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions by 50% compared to a 2015 baseline.

Mr Art Peck, president and chief executive officer, Gap Inc said that “We have a responsibility to reduce our climate impact. For Gap Inc, being a part of the climate solution means making strategic investments in clean energy generation. Today we have secured a path to achieving our 2020 goal, but we must do more. I’m proud to commit to renewable energy for 100 percent of our stores, headquarters and distribution centres globally by 2030.”
