Ford Using Wind Power at Dealerships

The energy being supplied is equivalent to charging the Ford Focus Electric 870 times, Fusion Energi and C-MAX Energi 2,600 times each.

Ford is continuing its program to investment in clean energy with the announcement on Nov. 10 that it has entered in to a pilot program with Wind Energy Corp. to supply four Ford dealerships with 20,000 kilowatts of electricity annually.

Wind Energy will invest nearly $750,000 to install wind sail and solar panel systems at the dealerships. EachWindy System will help power dealership facilities, electric vehicle charging stations and lot lighting.

The energy being supplies is equivalent to charging the Ford Focus Electric 870 times, Fusion Energi and C-MAX Energi 2,600 times each. Using one Windy System will offset nearly 14 tons of greenhouse gases per year.
