Midwest distillery commits to 100% wind energy

“MGP, a U.S. supplier of premium distilled spirits and specialty wheat proteins and starches, has embarked on a major renewable energy initiative, committing to sourcing 100% of their electricity needs from wind power. Through a three-year agreement that took effect April 1, the company has made a commitment to renewable energy through Westar Wind, a Green-e certified program offered by Westar Energy. As a result, total electric usage at MGP’s facilities in Atchison, Kansas, and Lawrenceburg, Indiana, will be offset by green energy provided by Westar’s wind resources in Kansas.”
