Brunswick Corp. said it signed a virtual power purchase agreement with Vesper Energy to offset the projected power needs of its global operations through solar energy.

Through the multiyear deal, Vesper will deliver about 57 megawatts of renewable energy to the North American grid from its Hornet Solar project in Texas, which is slated to be fully operational at the next of next year.

“We are proud to take the next step toward reducing our carbon footprint by entering into a contract with Vesper,” Brunswick CEO Dave Foulkes said in a statement. “Supporting the addition of more clean power to the grid is an excellent opportunity for us to continue leading the way in sustainable, responsible business practices.”

In its latest sustainability report, Brunswick set a company goal to derive 50 percent of its electricity from renewable sources by the end of 2030.
