Ardagh Glass Packaging and CI Renewables partner on a solar project in California

Ardagh Glass Packaging-North America (AGP-North America), an operating business of Ardagh Group, and CI Renewables are moving forward with plans of a renewable energy solar project in Madera, California. The 10-Megawatt solar project, built and operated by VALTA Energy, will be completed this year. The solar project will supply electricity to Ardagh Glass Packaging’s Madera, California glass manufacturing facility, which will account for approximately 25% of the facility’s electricity demand.

The electricity generated from this project is estimated to reduce demand from the local grid equivalent to more than 1,500 averaged-sized American homes (U.S. Energy Information Administration, 2023).

“We are pleased to see this important solar project for Ardagh move forward,” said Walter Serafyn, Managing Partner of CI Renewables LLC. “This is the second large-scale solar project we have developed for Ardagh, and we look forward to more opportunities with Ardagh in the future.”

Ardagh’s Madera, California facility has a long history of responsibly managing its natural resources usage. In 2022, the facility received its ninth consecutive ENERGY STAR® plant certification.

“As an environmental leader in the packaging industry, Ardagh continuously pursues opportunities to increase our use of renewable energy,” said Alex Winters, Chief Sustainability Officer at Ardagh Glass Packaging. “Not only does this project advance Ardagh closer to our sustainability targets, but it also stands to aid our wine customers in their sustainability endeavors. By curbing the carbon footprint of bottles sourced from our Madera facility, this initiative aligns with our shared goal of fostering a more environmentally conscious future.”

Ardagh’s Madera, California, facility manufactures glass containers for the U.S. wine market, supplying wineries across the U.S.
