Nestlé partners with Scottish Power

22 Jun 2016
Nestlé has confirmed its investment in renewable energy by signing a deal to buy 15 years worth of power from a Scottish wind farm.

The food giant plans to take power from a nine-turbine site in Dumfries and Galloway. The wind farm will produce approximately 125GWh of power a year and meet the power needs of approximately 30,000 homes and is equivalent to 50 per cent of Nestlé’s needs. 

The company declined to say how much it would be paying for the electricity generated from the farm. “The rate is very competitive in the short term but it will actually make significant economic sense in the medium to long term,” said Andrew Griffiths, head of environmental sustainability at Nestlé in the UK and Ireland.
