Ford Motor said on Wednesday every vehicle that it manufactures in Michigan would be assembled by making use of solar and other renewable energy sources by 2025.
The move comes as the automaker aims to reduce its emissions.
The automaker has signed a renewable energy purchase pact with local provider DTE Energy, under which the utility company will add 650 megawatts of new solar energy in the state for the automaker.
According to data provided by the Solar Energy Industries Association, once installed, the arrays will boost the total amount of installed solar energy in Michigan by almost 70%.
Ford is also buying carbon-free electricity through DTE’s MIGreenPower program, which is one of the largest voluntary renewable energy programs in the United States. To date, the company has over 600 businesses enrolled in the program along with over 62,000 residential customers.
