UnitedHealth Group has launched two new renewable energy initiatives aimed at supplying the company with 89% of its domestic energy needs and 58% of its global energy load.

The company has signed a 15-year renewable energy contract with a solar farm in Texas, which will begin commercial operations later this year, according to a March 26 news release.  

UnitedHealth has also invested $81 million in another Texas solar plant that will provide the company with additional renewable energy for seven years. The company said it is aiming to achieve operational net-zero by 2035.
