"Ohio Cement Plant Looks to Wind to Reduce Footprint of Energy-Intensive Industry,” Energy News Network

Upon the groundbreaking of LafargeHolcim’s Wind for Industry project in Paulding, Ohio, reporter Kathiann M. Kowalski spoke to LafargeHolcim and One Energy.

The article discusses Wind for Industry, the long-term fixed price hedge available via the One Energy REA, LafargeHolcim’s energy efficiency focus, and more.

Per the article: “LafargeHolcim plant manager Robert Pitt sees the company’s 20-year renewable energy agreement with One Energy as ‘a nice long-term fixed price hedge’ on electricity costs, which should let it save money over retail electricity rates.

“’And of course, every opportunity we can to reduce our carbon footprint, we try to take,’ Pitt added. LafargeHolcim has a global goal of 40% lower net carbon emissions per metric ton by 2030, compared to 1990.”
