The company’s newest renewable energy purchases will support wind and solar projects, developed by Invenergy, delivering 800 MW of sustainable energy, as well as 160 MWs of wind energy generated by the Frontier Windpower II project, developed by Duke Energy Renewables.

“The Climate Group is proud to have AT&T join with other leading companies at Climate Week NYC 2019 in taking bold action,” said Helen Clarkson, CEO of The Climate Group,

Together, AT&T’s renewable energy purchases to date are expected to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by an amount equivalent to providing electricity for more than 560,000 homes or taking 690,000 cars off the road for one year.

The projects are expected to create hundreds of construction jobs and dozens of permanent jobs in fast-growing clean energy careers.

As part of AT&T Aspire, our $500 million commitment to education and skilling, AT&T has provided scholarships and support for students seeking careers as wind turbine technicians and solar panel installers through contributions to organizations including Texas State Technical College (TSTC), Canadian Valley Technology Center (CV- Tech) and Homeboy Industries.

As a platinum sponsor of Climate Week NYC 2019, AT&T is also highlighting this week our company- wide commitment to help address climate change and the progress it is making toward its 10x Carbon Reduction Goal to enable greenhouse gas (GHG) savings 10x the footprint of our operations by 2025.
