Sonoco Signs VPPA with ENGIE for Big Sampson Wind Project Output


Sonoco Products Company and ENGIE North America have entered into a VPPA for production from ENGIE’s Big Sampson Wind Project, currently under construction in Crockett County, Texas.

The companies have agreed to contract for an estimated 140 MW annually for a 15-year term, to start when Big Sampson enters commercial operation.

“Collaborative projects like Big Sampson have the potential to help us make progress toward our emissions targets while delivering clean, reliable power to the communities they serve,” says Sonoco’s Elizabeth Rhue. “We are grateful for this long-term partnership with ENGIE as we work together to protect the environment and future generations and continue our promise of delivering ‘Better Packaging. Better Life’ solutions.”

The project consists of 60 wind turbines, each with a generating capacity of 4.5 MW, and is currently expected to be complete late next year.
