Computer manufacturer Dell is now powering its Oklahoma City, Oklahoma,
facility with 100 percent wind energy. A company statement that the
initiative, for which the company has partnered with Oklahoma Gas and
Electric, should save nearly 5,100 tons of carbon dioxide emissions
this year. "Integrating green power into our operations whenever and
wherever possible is a key environmental and business strategy," says
Dane Parker, director of environment, health, and safety at Dell. "It's
critical that our industry take a leadership role in the transition to
a green economy." Dell says that 35 percent of its U.S. energy use and
20 percent of global energy use now comes from renewable sources, and
that it plans to reduce its worldwide facilities' greenhouse gas
emissions by 40 percent by 2015.
