Cargill and Ardent Mills move to renewables

See how we helped global commodities, agriculture and finance leaders Cargill and Ardent Mills power its business with renewable energy to meet 90% of its load.

Published: August 10, 2020

The deal between Cargill, Ardent Mills and Shell Energy North America’s wholly owned subsidiary MP2 Energy, d/b/a Shell Energy Solutions (“Shell Energy”), will cover around 90% of the energy needs of both Cargill and Ardent Mills’ Texas facilities, and will run for almost six years, delivering more than 760,000 megawatt-hours of power.

This amount of power will move both Cargill and Ardent Mills closer towards their renewables and sustainability targets of having 50 percent of their U.S. electricity consumption be renewable by 2025.

This will be achieved through a simplified and effective retail power supply contract for physical renewable energy and renewable energy certificates (RECs), allowing for the supply of renewable energy from a new, location-specific, renewable generation resource.

Shell Energy specializes in helping corporate partners develop and implement intelligent energy strategies that make it possible for them to hit their sustainability, resilience and cost targets.
