HP Hood and Enel Green Power: Investing in a Cleaner Future with Renewable Energy

HP Hood, a leading U.S. dairy company, has been providing quality dairy products since 1846. Committed to sustainability through its partnership with Enel Green Power at Azure Sky wind farm in Texas, it is setting the stage to affect positive environmental change through its operations and energy supply.

Partnership

Renewing commitment to sustainability

As Hood marks its 175th anniversary, the legacy company looks to a sustainable future with its first renewable energy virtual power purchase agreement (VPPA). In May 2021, Hood entered into an agreement with Enel Green Power to purchase 90 GWh of wind energy each year. Through a 12-year VPPA, Hood will purchase the electricity delivered to the grid by a 25 MW portion of Enel Green Power’s Azure Sky wind project in Texas. Over the life of the VPPA, the Azure Sky project will generate approximately 90 GWh of renewable electricity annually - addressing 33% of the electricity used across all 13 of Hood’s owned manufacturing facilities in 2020.
