General Mills Continues Clean Energy Leadership; Signs Wind Power Agreement
June 08, 2017 9:00am
MINNEAPOLIS, June 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- General Mills has taken another step toward its climate goal with the signing of a virtual 15-year power purchase agreement with Renewable Energy Systems (RES) for 100-megawatts (MW) of its Cactus Flats wind project. The wind project will produce renewable energy credits for General Mills that can be applied toward the company's greenhouse gas emission reduction goals. During the peak of construction, the project will create about 250 jobs in the clean energy workforce.
"As we help mitigate the impacts of climate change, investing in wind energy is the right thing to do," said John Church, Executive Vice President of Supply Chain at General Mills. "This investment is another step towards reducing our energy footprint and achieving sustainable emission levels - in line with scientific consensus - by 2050."
General Mills' investment will help fund the construction of the 150-megawatt Cactus Flats wind project being developed in Concho County, Texas by RES, a leading global renewable energy and energy storage development and construction company. The project's renewable energy credits will enable General Mills to reduce its Scope 2 emissions as part of its target of sustainable emission levels across its global value chain by 2050. In 2016, General Mills reduced the greenhouse gas emissions of its extended value chain by 2 percent versus 2015.
"RES is proud to support General Mills in reducing its energy footprint and reaching its sustainability goals," said Brian Evans, Chief Development Officer, RES in the Americas. "We will continue to work with industry leaders, like General Mills, to deliver clean, reliable power at a competitive price."
The wind energy industry is currently one of the fastest growing segments for job creation, adding jobs 9 times faster than the overall U.S. economy*. According to Navigant Consulting, "the U.S. wind industry will support 865,000 job-years of employment and provide $85 billion in economic impact in 2017-2020"**.
Cactus Flats is located in a particularly favorable wind area in central Texas, which is the leading state in the U.S. for wind energy production with over 20,000 MW of installed capacity***. General Mills worked with Altenex, an Edison Energy company, to ensure the project met its sustainability, performance and economic objectives.
"General Mills' announcement is a significant step," said Cynthia Cummis, WRI's Director of Private Sector Climate Mitigation. "It demonstrates their ongoing commitment to achieve their climate goals."
General Mills is listed on the 2016 CDP Climate A-List. For more information on General Mills' ambitious climate commitment, visit its 2017 Global Responsibility Report and Taste of General Mills blog.

RES is Constructing the Redbed Plains Wind Farm
Broomfield, Colo. – Renewable Energy Systems (RES), a leader in the development, engineering, and construction of wind, solar, transmission, and energy storage projects in the Americas, is pleased to announce the start of construction on EDP Renewables North America’s (EDPR NA) Redbed Plains Wind Farm in Grady County, Oklahoma, just southwest of Oklahoma City.
Redbed Plains Wind Farm will have a capacity of 99.1 MW and consist of 48 Siemens Gamesa turbines. An interconnection agreement for the project has been finalized with American Electric Power (AEP). Nearly 250 jobs will be created during the peak of construction.
With the completion of Redbed Plains, RES will have developed and/or constructed more 1,100 MW of wind energy in Oklahoma. Per the American Wind Energy Association, Oklahoma now ranks third in the United States with more than 6,600 MW of wind power installed.
“Redbed Plains marks a significant milestone for RES, as it is our eighth wind project in Oklahoma,” stated Jason Zingerman, Senior VP Construction for RES. “We look forward to continued work with landowners and major stakeholders to bring the economic benefits of renewable energy to the Sooner State.”
“EDPR NA will expand its footprint to more than 600 MW of operational wind projects in Oklahoma with the completion of the Redbed Plains Wind Farm,” said Phillip Westerby, Executive Vice President, Technical. “The company remains committed to providing clean, renewable energy throughout North America.”
RES began construction in April 2017 with completion scheduled for fourth quarter 2017.

RES Sells IdentiFlight, LLC Assets to Boulder Imaging Affiliate
Innovative technology leading the way for protecting Bald and Golden eagles in flight.
Broomfield, CO – Renewable Energy Systems (RES), a leader in the development, construction, and operations of wind, solar, transmission, and energy storage projects in the Americas, is pleased to announce the sale of assets of IdentiFlight, LLC, a subsidiary of RES, to IdentiFlight International, LLC. IdentiFlight International, LLC is jointly owned by Boulder Imaging, a Colorado-based expert in machine vision solutions, and certain private investors affiliated with the company.
The IdentiFlight® avian detection system, is a fully automated aerial detection technology developed in collaboration with Boulder Imaging. The system aims to reduce the wildlife impacts of wind energy with particular emphasis on the protection of in-flight species, such as bald and golden eagles. RES began its investment in developing eagle detection technology after recognizing the need for it and finding none available in the market. RES has sold the exclusive marketing rights along with any other intellectual property in relation to IdentiFlight® to IdentiFlight International.
Paul Walker, Chief Financial Officer of RES in the Americas, adds “The IdentiFlight® detection system adds an excellent chapter to RES’ ongoing story of innovation in technology, service and products for the renewable energy industry. With IdentiFlight’s successful debut in 2016, the partnership with Boulder Imaging has reached the critical milestone where diverse stakeholders in utilities, wind farm operators, biologists and government regulators can capitalize on the best technology available to protect eagles. RES is confident that IdentiFlight International, LLC will maximize the positive impact that we know IdentiFlight® is uniquely capable of providing.”
As wind energy development continues, IdentiFlight® technology will help in addressing one of the most pressing challenges facing the industry - avian impacts. IdentiFlight’s use of cameras to detect flight near wind turbine sites and its ability to initiate shutdown of those specific turbines, greatly reduces aviation mortality rates and helps better estimate potential eagle deaths at future project locations. IdentiFlight® will help maximize energy production while minimizing wildlife impacts.
“We have enjoyed a mutually beneficial relationship with RES for over five years and are very proud of our latest machine vision innovation with IdentiFlight®,” said Carlos Jorquera, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Technology Officer for Boulder Imaging. “Boulder Imaging shares RES’ passion to protect wildlife and ensure nature and wind energy can coexist. With third party testing and validation now complete, we are thrilled to assume the leadership and ownership of this product at such a critical stage.”
