The new 778-megawatt Stonewall Energy Center in Loudon County, Virginia provides the electricity the community needs while protecting its water, wildlife, and other natural resources. More than 778,000 homes in Virginia and Washington DC will be powered by the clean energy this plant produces.
Transitioning to clean energy is one of the most efficient ways for companies to mitigate their environmental impact, as it prevents GHG emissions as well as providing a long-term solution for energy needs.
For that reason, appliance manufacturer Whirlpool Corporation is pushing ahead with wind energy expansion as part of its efforts to decrease its carbon footprint in a bid to make its business increasingly sustainable as well as more socially responsible.
Data centers are the factories of the 21st century, processing the ever-expanding volumes of information that make the global economy go. But progress comes with a cost.
