Bottled waters supplier Nestlé Waters North America (NWNA) has entered into a renewable energy pact with ENGIE Resources, a subsidiary of ENGIE North America.

As per the deal, ENGIE will supply over 50 percent of the energy needed for NWNA’s manufacturing and distribution facilities in Texas.

Moreover, NWNA operations in Travis, McLennan, Dallas, and Harris counties will be supplied by renewable wind energy from the Midway Wind Farm in San Patricio County, Texas, supporting Nestlé’s global goal to transition to 100 percent renewable energy use in its operations.

The bottled water supplier will use clean, renewable energy to produce sustainably sourced beverage options for Texans, including it’s Ozarka Brand Natural Spring Water and Nestlé Pure Life Purified Water.

The agreement will include up to 70,500 renewable energy certificates (RECs) per year from Midway Wind.

Based on current electrical usage, by transitioning its electrical power needs to renewable sources, the carbon footprint from the company’s Texas factories will be reduced by more than 44,000 metric tons of CO2 equivalent per year. This is the equivalent of taking 9,500 vehicles off the road for one year.

Commenting on the development, Nestlé Waters North America, Vice President, Head of Technical and Production, Alexander Gregorian said, “We are proud to partner with ENGIE and Midway Wind, LLC here in Texas, as we continue our journey toward achieving 100 percent renewable energy use in our operations.”
