ENGIE North America today announced it has added nearly 2 GW of renewable energy to the U.S. in 2020, as part of ENGIE’s commitment to deliver 9 GW of renewable energy capacity globally between 2019 and 2021. These new clean energy capacities will offset nearly 2.1 million metric tons of carbon and bring ENGIE’s renewables capacity to more than 3 GW in North America – enough to power 1.3 million homes.

The six grid-scale wind projects and two grid-scale solar projects contributed to the company’s record pace of renewable energy developmentand construction.These projects are located in Texas, Kansas, South Dakota and Oklahoma. With the completion of theseprojects,adding 1.4 GW of wind and 0.4 GW of solar,and otherprojects in the U.S. and Canada, ENGIE now has more than3 GW of renewable generationcapacity in North America developed over the past two years.
