Innovation: Environment

Fueled by the Sun

We house 46MW of solar power at 18 facilities. Our Zaragoza, Spain assembly plant was the world’s largest industrial rooftop solar installation until 2012. It puts up to 12 megawatts of energy back into the plant, significantly reducing the need for energy found in fossil fuels.

Additionally, 17 Chevrolet and Cadillac dealers offer solar charging canopies for electric vehicle owners to charge their vehicles.

While we have made great strides in our quest to build affordable vehicles that run on electricity, it’s only prudent that we come up with ways to harness our most abundant resource, and we feel we are taking steps toward that goal every day.

We now derive 2.1 percent of our U.S. energy from renewable resources.
