Starwood Energy Group Global, LLC, a leading private investment firm focused on energy infrastructure, announced that an affiliate has signed a long-term renewable energy power purchase agreement with General Motors.

General Motors will buy all of the clean energy generated by the Northwest Ohio Wind project, a 100 megawatt (MW) project owned by Starwood Energy Group that located across about 12,750 acres of land in Van Wert and Paulding Counties. The project is scheduled to be completed in 2018.

Based on standard EPA calculations and references, the Northwest Ohio Wind project will power over 30,000 homes, avoid the CO2 emissions of over 34,000 homes, or equivalently avoid the CO2 emissions of over 48,000 passenger vehicles.

"Fortune 100 companies such as General Motors have become a key force supporting renewable energy," said Himanshu Saxena, Senior Managing Director and Co-Head of Starwood Energy Group. "We are pleased to enter into this partnership with General Motors to help meet their sustainability objectives."

"Starwood's Northwest Ohio Wind project is helping us toward our goal of meeting the electricity needs of our global operations with 100 percent renewable energy," said Rob Threlkeld, GM global manager of renewable energy. "The wind farm is ideally located to help meet the electricity needs of our Ohio manufacturing facilities."
