GM’s EV company will purchase renewable energy credits from solar farms

The 'Farm to Fleet' initiative allows Cruise to directly purchase credits to power its fleet in San Francisco. In 2019, the company pledged to power its fleet with 100% renewable energy.

GM’s self-driving electric vehicle company, Cruise, will purchase renewable energy credits from two California solar farms, the company announced this week.

The ‘Farm to Fleet’ initiative allows Cruise — which owns and operates its own EV charging infrastructure — to directly purchase renewable energy credits to power its fleet in San Francisco. In 2019, the company pledged to power its fleet with 100% renewable energy.

“Farm to Fleet is a vehicle to rapidly reduce urban transportation emissions while generating new revenue for California’s farmers leading in renewable energy,” the company said in a release.

Cruise initially partnered with Sundale Vineyards and Moonlight in Central California. Sundale has installed 2 megawatts of solar capacity onsite while Moonlight is equipped with a combined 3.9 megawatts of solar + storage.
