Target’s Bullseye- 100% Renewables by 2030

Target Corporation announced a 100 percent renewable energy goal by 2030 for all company operations including its stores, distribution centers and offices. Currently at 22 percent renewable electricity, Target has set interim goals of sourcing 60 percent of electricity from renewables by 2025 that will include 500 solar PV installations on its own roofs.  Additionally, Target has entered into power purchase agreements with large wind farm and solar developers across the country for more than 222 MW of power to come online 2019 through 2020. Target’s LED lighting retrofits to almost all of its 1,800 stores have resulted in a 10 percent reduction in energy use. It’s plan includes adding electric vehicle charging stations at over 100 sites across more than 20 states, as well.  Renewables Now, Windpower
