Grupo Cementos de Chihuahua opts for wind energy in South Dakota

Grupo Cementos de Chihuahua (GCC) has partnered with Black Hills Energy to use wind energy at its cement plant in Rapid City, South Dakota, from next year.

GCC says converting wind energy will reduce its carbon dioxide emissions to around 50,000 metric tonnes annually.

Ron Henley, GCC’s US division president, says: “By choosing low-cost renewable energy resources to power our business, we’re able to advance our business goals and sustainability objectives while also supporting the expansion of affordable, renewable energy development in the region.”

Black Hills Energy is to build a wind-power generating facility near Cheyenne, Wyoming, to supply the energy.

The Corriedale Wind Energy Project is expected to produce energy by the first quarter of 2021 that will be shared with subscribers in South Dakota and Wyoming.

The move is part of Black Hills Energy’s Renewable Ready Programme, which will provide around 50% of the cement plant’s electricity needs for the next 15 years.

The programme was designed for large commercial and industrial customers and governmental agencies in the company’s electric service territories in South Dakota and Wyoming.
