Proctor & Gamble has added to its renewable energy portfolio by starting up a wind turbine at its pet care plant in the Netherlands last week. The turbine will supply about 17 percent of the plant’s annual energy, producing 5,500 megawatt hours per year, enough to power 1,500 houses in Holland. It is the company’s first investment in wind energy. Next in P & G’s renewable energy program is the installation of solar panels at its Beauty and Grooming plant in Cologne, Germany.
