Rivian today announced plans for a large-scale wind turbine at its Normal manufacturing campus that is intended to provide clean energy to enable new R1 vehicles to be powered by renewables for their first charge. The wind turbine project supports the company’s long-term renewable energy vision of developing high-impact projects that reduce its carbon footprint while also benefiting customers, communities, and the electrical grid. “To us, our job isn’t done when our vehicles come off the line,” said Andrew Peterman, Rivian Director of Renewable Energy. The proposed wind turbine would be less than 510 feet tall, with white, non-reflective blades. The wind project aligns with Rivian’s strategy of adding renewable resources to parts of the country that need them most.
