General Motors adding solar power to plants

Posted: Updated:
 FLINT, Mich. (AP) -- General Motors Co. says it's boosting solar power at its plants.
 
The Detroit automaker said Tuesday that it's adding three acres of new solar arrays at two Michigan facilities: an engine plant in Flint and processing center in nearby Swartz Creek.
 
The ground-mounted solar arrays are expected to generate a combined 400,000 kilowatt hours of renewable energy annually. That's equivalent to the annual energy of use of 25 homes.
 
The installations are expected to be completed this fall. Once operational, GM says it will generate more than 38 megawatts of solar power at 13 facilities worldwide.
 
The automaker's goal is to increase renewable energy use around the world to 125 megawatts by 2020.
