Target signs 89-MW solar PPA to hit 100% renewable electricity by 2030 goal

Target Corp. has signed a PPA with ENGIE North America for 89 MW of capacity from the Sand Fork Solar Project in Texas. The project is expected to be completed in the summer of 2021 and have a total capacity of 200 MW. The remainder of the project’s capacity will be purchased by another corporate customer.

Target’s PPA has a term of 15 years and is estimated to result in annual generation of 250,000 MWh.

“We truly value the opportunity to support Target in its commitment to source electricity from renewables,” said Gwenaelle Avice-Huet, CEO of ENGIE North America. “By serving Target with the Sand Fork Project, we’re proud to help shape a sustainable future for customers and communities and reinforce our ambition to lead the zero-carbon transition.”

Target has committed to source 100% of its electricity from renewable sources by 2030. The company has also signed on to purchase electricity from a wind project in Illinois. Target is on track to source 60% of its electricity through renewable sources by 2025.
