Protective Life Corporation’s Alabama headquarters will now have 100% renewable energy thanks to a new collaboration with Alabama Power.
Protective, a wholly owned U.S. subsidiary of Dai-ichi Life Holdings, on Thursday announced the deal with the power company. Protective’s 620,000-square-foot headquarters on U.S. 280 anchors the company’s Birmingham-based workforce of 1,500 and will now anchor its sustainable future.
The estimated energy use at Protective’s headquarters per year is equivalent to 19 million kilowatt-hours of wind energy.
“At Protective, we are committed to investing for the future,” said Scott Adams, executive vice president, Corporate Responsibility, Strategy and Innovation of Protective. “We are fortunate to have an innovative company like Alabama Power in our backyard, enabling us to power our headquarters with 100% renewable energy. As two of Alabama’s largest employers, we have a responsibility to help build a sustainable future.”
