P&G uses wind to power its North American fabric and home care factories



Popular Procter & Gamble products such as Tide, Mr. Clean, Febreze and Dawn will soon be made with power generated 100% by the wind.

The CPG giant’s Texas-based wind farm will become fully operational later this year and the company says it expects it to generate 370,000 megawatt-hours of electricity each year, more than enough to power its fabric and home care plants in Canada and the United States. To put it in perspective, P&G says the amount of power generated from the wind farm will be equivalent to avoiding about 200,000 metric tons of CO2 emissions annually.

P&G has teamed up with U.S. independent power producer EDF Renewable Energy for the initiative.
