Procter & Gamble has employed its first wind turbine at its plant in Coevorden, Netherlands.

The turbine, part of the company's "P&G's 2020 enivironmental goals" initiative, is expected to produce around 5,500 megawatt-hours of energy per year, covering a third of the total electricity requirement of the plant. The energy produced will be sufficient to provide 1,500 households in the Netherlands with power, according to the company.
