Roanoke Valley Operations (RVO) in Virginia, where all Mack Trucks medium-duty vehicles are assembled, is now certified and participating in Appalachian Power Company’s 100% Renewable Wind-Water-Sunlight (WWS) Service, the company announced. This means that RVO purchases 100% of its renewable energy with zero CO2 emissions from Appalachian Power, meeting company sustainability goals.
Appalachian Power’s WWS program, according to the company, allows customers the ability to consume renewable power around the clock with 100% of the energy generated by the company’s renewable power generators. The combination of wind, hydroelectric power and solar means that a customer’s load is being met with renewable resources anytime.
According to the press release, Appalachian Power has 338 megawatts (MW) of renewable resources available to its Virginia customers through the WWS program, which is enough to power 75,000 homes, the press release notes.
