SC Johnson - the maker of household products such as Windex, Glade, Pledge and Raid - says it has signed a power purchase agreement (PPA) with Comision Federal de Electricidad (CFE), Mexico's government-run grid operator, that will enable SC Johnson to increase its use of renewable energy at its Toluca, Mexico, facility to an estimated 86%.

Under the PPA, SC Johnson will purchase wind energy produced by turbines located in Mexico's Oaxaca region beginning in the middle of this year. The wind turbines were constructed by Enel, in partnership with CFE.

This is not SC Johnson's first wind energy initiative: Last year, the company installed two wind turbines at Waxdale, its Mt. Pleasant, Wis.-based global manufacturing plant. In 2010, the company installed three mini-wind turbines at its Racine, Wis.-based corporate headquarters, and in 2009, the company erected a wind turbine to help power its European manufacturing facility in the Netherlands.
