Mondelez, the U.S. food company known for brands such as Oreo, Milka, Toblerone and Cadburry, has signed a 12-year power purchase agreement with Enel Green Power North America (EGPNA), under which Mondelez will purchase electricity from a 65-MW section of the »Roadrunner« solar power plant currently under construction in Upton County, Texas, for an undisclosed price.
By the end of this year, the Roadrunner plant is expected to have a capacity of 252 MW, and by the end of next year the capacity is scheduled to be 497 MW. According to Enel Green Power, the electricity yield will then be around 1.2 terawatt hours, i.e. around 2,400 kilowatt hours per kilowatt of installed capacity. Mondelez would thus account for around 156 gigawatt hours per year. The contractual partners do not provide any concrete information on this either and merely state that Mondelez will have enough solar power available to produce around ten billion »Oreo« biscuits per year – half of the annual quantity sold in the USA alone.
