Jamie Dimon, chairman and CEO of JPMorgan Chase, said: “Business must play a leadership role in creating solutions that protect the environment and grow the economy. This global investment leverages the firm’s resources and our people’s expertise to make our operations more energy efficient and provide clients with the resources they need to develop more sustainable products and services.”

Solar portfolio

As part of the company’s new renewable-energy initiative, JPMorgan Chase will install a large on-site solar portfolio, including PV institutions for up to 1,400 bank-owned retail and 40 commercial buildings globally.

In particular, JPMorgan Chase plans to develop a PV institution at its Polaris Corporate Center in Columbus, Ohio. The solar project could feature an installed generation capacity of 20MW — enough to power the equivalent of 3,280 homes.

The company also plans to develop a 7MW PV project at the new JPMorgan Chase Legacy West Complex in Plano, Texas — while also piloting an installation of solar panels at Chase branches in California and New Jersey. JPMorgan Chase also plans to sign off on power contracts that  will offset its consumption by 40%.

The firm will also offset 40% of its traditional power consumption by executing wind and solar Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) in select US markets.
