Renewable Energy in Honduras
We are committed to supporting the worldwide growth in renewable energy, particularly in developing countries. In 2018, we began our first purchase power agreement on solar to install solar panels on the roof of our Jerzees Nueva Dia facility with power generation starting in January 2019. We followed this project with our second solar installation at our Tela Plant in Honduras that began delivering energy in October 2019. We also invested in bio-mass in our power plant in Merendon. Today, these investments and our purchase of renewable energy credits mean that 45% of the electricity we buy comes from renewables.
