Baker Hughes to Go 100% Renewable at its 170 Texas Facilities

Baker Hughes has entered into an agreement to purchase 100% of its Texas electricity from renewable sources. Designed in collaboration with Energy Edge Consulting and EDF Energy Services, the agreement combines renewable energy from the Texas-based White Mesa Wind project, owned and developed by Apex Clean Energy and the Talitha solar project, owned and developed by 7X Energy. The combination of wind and solar assets creates an energy production profile that aligns with Baker Hughes’ electricity use patterns around the clock and is more beneficial than purchasing all of the company’s Texas energy needs from a single renewable asset.
