Chevy Cruze and Silverado Plants Commit to Renewable Energy

General Motors has shown a long-standing commitment to environmental responsibility and two of their manufacturing facilities are about to get even greener. GM has purchased 200 megawatts of wind energy from wind farms in Ohio and right here in Illinois which will power the Fort Wayne Assembly plant in Indiana where the Chevrolet Silverado is built and the Lordstown Assembly plant in Ohio where the Chevy Cruze is built. Five other GM plants in Indiana and Ohio will also make use of this renewable power source. “Technology is driving solutions for mobility and safety in our vehicles, as well as the new energy solutions that build them,” said Gerald Johnson, GMNA vice president of Manufacturing and Labor. “This is the way we do business: offering vehicles that serve our customers’ lifestyle needs while providing sustainable solutions that improve our communities.” Phillips Chevrolet in Frankfort , Lansing, and Bradley has Illinois’ Largest Chevy Inventory including a great selection of Cruzes and Silverados!
